General Pinball Discussion / Re: Incandescent VS LEDs - What are you using ?

I dont mind that people use LEDs
it is the need to use colored LEDS throughout the GI circuit

the GI is meant to illuminate the playfield, making it easier to see
colored LEDs make it harder

Ive still got about 50 boxes of #47's. All my games are incandescent and my 1937 Stoner has the original bulbs in it.. all of which work.
Ive got no reason to fix something that isn't broke and when I see games on Ebay that list LED as a selling point it always looks like someone puked a rainbow into the machine.
LED's behind the BG look f**king shocking.. no diffused light at all...pin points of light.
Havent used them yet but no doubt ill be forced to at some point due to the supply of #47's disappearing when they stop manufacture due to market demand.
Will be a dark day in my book..

Generally depends on the era for me but it’s not a hard and fast rule. I prefer my one EM and multiple Early SS Bally’s with the warmth of the incandescent’s throughout but I quite like LED’s under the the inserts on Gottlieb Sytem 1 games.
DMD games I like the LED’s but not behind the backglass.

They are the correct switches -120 and -114. However, there is a set you can buy with both switches already mounted on a bracket. They are riveted on. I used to replace the switches on the old bracket, but it is less fiddly to use the set which is already riveted and ready to go. We are out of stock, but more will be here at the end of next week.

Great, thanks Nino, I’ve a bunch of other stuff in my cart at the moment but I’ll wait for them to come back in stock before placing an order.
