$200 Piano Light? I Think Not!

While it might not look like much it certainly does the job! After looking on Vandaking and other sites for piano lights, I found myself asking how something as simple as a few LED's could cost $200.

So as I was doing my weekly online Ikea hunt, I came across this fixture, Inreda @ $15. You also have to buy the power cord ANSLUTA.  I built a small box out of pine, took the LED driver apart and drilled a small hole into the enclosure to pass the led cable through. I then de soldered the barrel connector to the board and soldered the LED cable directly to it.  This worked out great and for $20 bucks, I'm going to say it can't be beat. I think it even looks pretty swell.
