Super easy replacement in our drafting lamps. I only wish a higher CRI was available. This is a 95, but 98 to 99 would be better.
I have searched the internet wide over for a appropriate light source for my art studio. My search ended when I found Waveform Lighting. After receiving the NorthLux™ 95 CRI E26 A19 LED Bulbs for Art & Studio … I found that the other light bulbs I have from various other companies did not compare at all in brightness, color rendering capability, and in general overall quality. Holding one of the Waveform light bulbs in your hand, you can feel it is solid built compared to the others.
As a painter, I was fighting my light source and unwanted color distortions, but the full spectrum bulbs I bought allow me to see color with fresh eyes where I no longer fight color distortion unless it is my choice to do so.
4000K is yellowish, but 5000K is like the natural sunlight. If you want the room to be like early morning, use one bulb. If you want it to be like mid morning, use 2 bulbs. If you want it to be like noon time, use three bulbs. You get the idea!
What a relief to have color that feels full!
I bought one bulb to try out in the 5000k range and was surprised at what a nice light it gives. I never liked the coolness of led’s; they felt harsh to my eyes and less natural. I’m now gearing up to order a linear tube, color correcting bulb for my art space. So glad this company makes high quality led lighting with a high CRI. I’ll surely be a repeat customer throughout the years..
I placed this thing in my dining room and bedroom and it lit up like I was outside. I take a lot of pictures of old photos, and getting the right color as the original is very important to me. These lights performed outstandingly in allowing me to achieve what I was looking for. The true colors of items in the area of use are now MUCH more realistic than ever. Thanks
Bulbs are great! No need to buy expensive new lighting for painting. I just used my old and replaced the bulbs. I wish I could buy in Canada.
I am an artist (painter) and so very careful with the lights I use in my studio. Couldn't be happier to have purchased these. Great in every aspects Waveform Lighting promises. Thanks
Just starting my printing and framing journey. After researching several lighting options, these bulbs came across as the most economical way to start. And they do not disappoint.
Being a standard E26 bulb I can place them in many different locations, situations, and setups to evaluate the future purchase of more expensive lighting options for displaying my work.
If you're new to art lighting, this is a perfect bulb with which to start. If you're experienced, this is a perfect bulb with which to experiment with "proper lighting" in different locations and situations.
