What is your favorite country to collect lighting equipment from? « on: May 13, 2024, 02:41:03 PM » Author: WorldwideHIDCollectorUSA
Does anybody here have a preference of which country they like to collect their lighting equipment from even if it includes your native country?

For me, even though I live in the USA, Japan is my favorite country to collect lighting equipment from because that country has a wide range of unique lamps and fixtures that cannot be found anywhere else in the world such as the wide range of mercury vapor retrofit lamps that include high pressure sodium, deluxe high pressure sodium, quartz metal halide, colored quartz metal halide, and ceramic metal halide lamps available in a wide range of wattage ratings.

Of course for me its Greece since I live there, and its easier for me to find Greek made bulbs, ballasts and fixtures that can't be found easily outside of Greece. (Except for the widespread Greek-made brass bulkheads that can be found anywhere).

If you want to see bulbs made in Greece check my Gallery.

for me it is less of a "country" and more of certain items from countries / regions
like eastern European lanterns and LOW wattage mercury from Japan
