Replacement Bulbs for 2VUB and 4VUB Audio Meter

We're commonly asked where to find replacement lamps for the 2VUB/4VUB meter. The manufacturer of the bulb has been sold a few times, so part numbers have changed over the years.

This bulb is commonly available and fits the 4VUB meter: JKL 382 T-1 3/4 Midget Flanged Bulb
This is a LED alternative: LE-MF-12W

As of this writing (March 2021), the JKL-382 was available from Mouser for $0.78/each.
