Have you tried it behind a clear lens?
I was saying a clear lens with the red LED. Although a clear LED behind the red lens could be brighter too
I'm curious what you end up with, I have a stash of "super bright" LEDs I use in pedal projects, but don't know the specs. They are bright! (I modded a wah pedal for a friend, and added a "super bright" blue indicator, he made me change it for a standard red, said it was too distracting!)
Can you remove the bulb from the pilot light and just let the new LED live behind the jewel, or are there times the amp may be running but the LED isn’t illuminated?
Right, I had assumed the bulb was out already. Is it not?
Another option is to use a 53 or 55 bulbs that are shorter than the 47.
A 53 is quite a bit shorter!
Edit, just installed one in a lamp assy. Still no room!
I wouldn't bother with the vintage amp. I'd make a separate hole for the LED on the custom builds.
