Dennis...you can use a 12 volt car dashboard lamp...the old ones #194 was what I use. Bend the leads down and soldier into place where you removed the old bulb.

Thanks Kingman...............I'll give it a try.

Is the illumination from the 12v car dashboard
lamp about the same as the original lamp?

It will be a little brighter but was as close a fit as I could find. I think you will find it satisfactory.

I found the replacement #194 lamps at AutoZone.
I elected to use an amber version bulb rather than
the standard clear bulb. The AutoZone part number
is Sylvania #194NA (amber) Marker Light. The result
is a pale yellow orange illumination which matches
my TX-12 Tuner's VU meter perfectly. The TX-12
meter is slightly more intense than the meters on
my TFM-45 amps, but still a very good match.

The replacement of the lamp took all of 15 minutes.

Kingman..........Thanks again! :D :D :D
