In need of SSL 4000/6000 Lamp Colored 'Lenses'

Yep - I need those condoms. Looked online, no luck. Please give me your thoughts.

I haven't - their prices on a master section overlay decal were so outrageous that I didn't pursue it. I certainly can give it shot, thanks.

Use LEDs instead. You get the colour built in, and they will never burn out.

SSL had an end-of-life sale on 4000 parts about 10 years ago. I doubt they have any left (although I might be surprised!).

I sourced some LEDs that were exact replacements for the lamps (same voltage and base design) when I was still looking after a 4000. You just have to be careful which way you put them in, since LEDs are polarity sensitive.

Sorry, but I don't have part numbers or even a supplier's name handy any longer.

Thanks Geoff. I did go with LED's, but the whites are too bright. The 'condoms' tone it down and actually look great. Just need more...

LED's dont get hot and are cheap and last very long! Maybe you could ad some paint to them to get the color or brightness you prefer? Just a tip! Good luck.
