Product Description

The NorthLux™ T8 LED tube light is an excellent choice for fluorescent fixtures that need a lighting upgrade that meets the color accuracy needs of an art studio.

With a 95 CRI rating, colors and hues will appear just as they do under natural daylight, giving you the confidence to work on your projects during evening hours or where supplemental lighting is necessary.

Good lighting quality and responsive service

The lighting quality is pleasant and even. I'm replacing all my fluorescents with waveform lighting. The service department was responsive in promptly replacing a defective item.

NorthLux™ 95 CRI T8 5000ºK LED Tubes

We really like these lights. Very high CRI, excellent R9. We are planning to replace all of our old fluorescent tubes with Northlux tubes in our New York City photography gallery. Photographs and other artwork really require high CRI illumination for proper viewing – regular LEDs for general illumination won't do.

David Morgan
The Ultimate Studio Lighting

Upgrading from fluorescent lighting made such a difference. I ripped out the old failing fluorescent ballasts from the ceiling fixture and rewired for LED (not required, but made me feel better). Now, the light is brighter, the colors in my paintings read truer, and I'm much happier. I plan on buying a Northlux shop light to hang over my drawing desks.

As a professional artist, I LOVE NorthLux™ 95 CRI T8 LED Tubes for Art & Studio! (I bought 4!)

LOVE my NorthLux™ 95 CRI T8 LED Tubes for Art & Studio!
I bought 4 for my studio -- they use my old fixtures and grace my painting easel with very clean, perfect light!
Such a great technology! No buzz, no flicker, no hesitation! Best studio purchase I have made in a while!

Wonderful light, should have gotten them sooner

I run a large community studio and I generally have great natural light during the day, so I was a bit lazy about looking for lights to replace the standard fluorescent tubes. Being in the NW, we do suffer early sunsets in the winter, and then just some generally low light days throughout the year. I think I found Waveform on Google and was intrigued by there line of tubes specifically for artists. I had several T8 fixtures and got a mix of the 6500K and 5000K. They make a HUGE difference!! They were easy to pop in, and give the room a beautiful amount of light, not too warm, not too cool. I wish I had put them in right away.
