Retro SMD Bulbs
SMD Retro bulbs are for those who want the brightness of an incandescent with the long-lasting performance of an SMD. They are available with a frosted lens, and a bayonet base, making them an excellent choice to replace any 44/47 bulbs - particularly if you want to mimic the level of light found in EM pinball machines. (Warm White is best choice if you want a warm/yellow glow on your whites).
They're designed with general illumination and backbox lighting in mind. We currently only carry a limited number of colors/styles of this bulb. If you'd like to see us expand, please reach out!
Why do these exist?
We've been selling lots of 1LED and 2LED bulbs over the years, but many people have found them lacking in longevity, particularly when used for general illumination, and games on location.
We've discontinued these LED-style bulbs and are switching over to SMD-style bulbs, which are something we can proudly stand behind in terms of performance. They are more expensive, but need to be replaced far less often, so the lifetime cost of lighting your game is far lower.
