Replacements bulbs for TFM-15cb light meters?

Post by nemodat » Sat Dec 25, 2010 3:34 pm

Hello and Merry Christmas. I have just taken my Carver system out of retirement (TFM-15cb amp and TC-17 preamp/tuner). Everything is working perfectly except the light meter bulbs on the amp which are dead (the needles still work). I live in Vancouver, BC so perhaps my best bet is Rita's Vintage Audio Repair in Washington state? Can the bulbs be replaced independent of the rest of the meters? If so, is the bulb a generic type along the lines of a fuse, or do I need to track down Carver-specific bulbs?

Many thanks.
