LED strips inside a guitar amp head

Post by lolthrash » Thu Feb 04, 2010 10:59 am

I think I've read people talking about it on here before, but I can't remember where I saw it and I can't find it... But has anyone wired a bunch of LEDs inside your amp head to light it all up? Curious about how you would go about running them off the amp's power supply..

from what i understand, get two 24" aka 60cm led strips with self adhesive tape on the back. put one on the top and one on the bottom just behind the grill. wire it into the fan which should be 12v

schladog should be able to clarify

see here for an example, or just go to ebay and type in 60cm led strip

Hello,
The question was, with the LED stips, all it has is 2 open wires, where do they connect to, or do they connect to the halo lights connection????
