PLEASE help me locate this bulb!!!

Hi there. I’m having a hard time finding decorative LEDs with the following properties:

Candelabra base

3500k

Somewhere between 400-600 lumens

dimmable

Both ‘torpedo’ or ‘straight’ shape and curved tip.

I’ve looked in big box stores, online, everywhere and have come up short. Any help that you can provide would be great!

I have searched Home Depot’s website, Lowes Amazon, 1000Bulbs, Bulbs.com and just randomly searched Goigle and have come up empty so far. If you found the bulb that meets my specs I would appreciate a link, thank you.

click

we started with 3700K expensive local bought lED bulbs all around the house, when they say warm white on AE it matches nicely, so just search for warm white and pick any you like

I am slowly changing because I like the design of the filament bulbs very much and soe have reall beautiful glass shapes
Model ST64 is what I so like:

and a thread adaptor should do the trick.

Your colour choice seems to be the big problem here.

Yea, you’re right about that. I chose 3500k because Lowes sells a Sylvania 85W equivalent 3500k BR40 that fits most applications in my house, and we like the color temp. So now I’m learning that it’s difficult in general to find 3500k bulbs, especially decorative bulbs. The bulb in your link is an A19, which won’t work for me.

1000Bulbs sells a Curtis Mathes ‘flame tip’ 3000k bulb that I might just have to use. Right now I think all of my installed decorative bulbs are 2700k, so it would at least be a small step in the right direction to match the 3500k BR40’s that I just installed.

You probably didn’t read what I typed: “and a thread adaptor should do the trick”…

https://www.amazon.com/CRLight-Adapter-Candelabra-Enlarger-Converter/dp/...

that way you get to use cheap bulbs that match your colour requirements.

Thank you for the follow up and the socket conversion idea. The bulb that you linked is an A19 though, and not a decorative bulb. Am I missing something..? (I probably am!)

That is because you suggested examples rather than telling him exactly what to buy. The initial response from him should have indicated what sort of poster they were.
