Steve I'd be curious to see how these lamps perform. I looked at similar
drop in replacements but I was concerned that the beam width would be too
narrow to illuminate the Ten-Tec meters. Most of the light would go
straight up rather than at 90 degrees towards the meter back.
Keep us posted!

I am purchasing one each of Chicago Miniature Lamp part #
1860225W3D and # 1860225W3 (from Mouser).
These are listed as drop-in replacements for the #756 lamp.
I will try them out in my Centurion amplifier (the same bulb is used
in the Hercules II and perhaps other TT models) and report back to the
list what I learn. At ~$10 each, you have to be sure what to buy!
