Soft Pink lit!

Soft Pink lit!

Click to view full size image

It occurred to me I should post a photo of these lit, for those of you (particularly outside of North America) who haven't ever seen one of these, much less lit.

Of course, the color isn't a saturated pink; it's more of a subdued warm tone, the intent of these was to create a warmer atmosphere with richer light quality, warmer instead of cooler like a GE 'Reveal'.

These are modern Chinese ones (I think since replaced with Hungarian versions) but these have been around practically forever, they used to be ceramic!

Cool Andy! I have the exact same soft pink GE's from China at my house that I got at Walmart. I bough Hungarian versions online to keep at the office.

Interestingly, the Chinese bulbs seem better made than the Hungarian bulbs because there is a center support in the horizontal filaments.

Yeah, I found these at Fred Meyer, in a pile of Hungarian ones. (Yes, I pick and choose what box I grab, even if it's at the back, I like finding old-stock ones). I figured they were older.

I do the same thing, Andy. I pick the bulbs that appear to be in the best condition and have the best etches, and try to find the ones with the thinnest soft white or pink coating so I can observe the filament, even if it means sorting through an entire shelf of a certain bulb. We have that in common

Or the shake every box until you find one which doesn't rattle...

I also do my best to avoid picking bulbs with flaws (dents, chips, scratches, etc.) in the glass or crooked filaments/halogen capsules. Philips tends to have the best quality glass with very few flaws.

Just make sure you buy the right wattage...175w MV lamp not a 250...

(Actual thing that happened earlier this week)
