    Hi guys! First post, so hopefully I got this right. I want to add leds to my newly aqquired Black Hole. I don't care for the look of the 2 kits I have seen ready made, too much green, and too expensive. Does anyone have a source and list of bulbs they used? I would love to see pics too. I read the previous posts on this topic, but they were several years old. Thanks in advance.#Blackhole

    I personally found the easiest thing to do is buy an assortment of different colors and try to find what you like best. The bulbs that light the lower playfield are a higher voltage, so you cant just put a standard led in them. I've personally used bulbs from Comet Pinball. But there are others out there.

    Thank you! Sounds like a great way to do it.

    If your in the Edmonton area let me know have lots of misc LED bulbs that you can start the trail and error process!
    Good call on the pre made sets!

    Thank you sir! I bought the Black Hole in Edmonton, but I am in Lethbridge.

    That's exactly what I did when I had Black Hole. I put different color bulbs behind the glass highlighting the planets and some colors in special areas of the playfield. A little trial and error but it turned out great.
