220 indicator lamp

Is there any way to get a 220v indicator lamp to light up to full strength in the US? It is working wired to the 120v tap but it is pretty dim. :?

If your PT has a 220V tap, just wire the lamp to it and your all set. :D
Remember....You can fix it with a little extra energy and a positive attitude. ;)

I had a suspicion that might be the case thanks.

I hooked to the 220v input and it is brighter. I probably could have hooked it to the 240v but maybe it wouldn't last as long.

I had a 120v lamp running on 230v for two years. :wink:
I didn't build that amp BTW

Hi, so for a 120 volt US type indicator I wire it either between the common & the 120 volt tap or the 120 volt tap & the 240 volt tap, right? Is either way preferable or is it much of a muchness. Cheers
