Question: Can these be used in a string I already own?
Answer: 90% of the time this will work. There are 2 points of contact the bulb needs to work; one on the bottom and one on the side. Most of the time our bulbs will work in other strings, so yes I would try it and if they do not work then you may need to replace the string or try a different brand bulb. You will also need to make sure the string can handle a 7 watt bulb in each socket.

Question: Will the color of the bulb be a true red, blue, green, etc.
Answer: The Incandescent bulbs have a white light inside and the bulb is dipped in color. Because the light inside is white the color on the outside is muted. If you want a true color please take a look at the LED bulbs, these have a colored light inside as well as the bulb having the same color.
Question: Will the “Black Light” C9 bulb make things glow?
Answer: Even though the name of this bulb is “black light” it does not have the UV properties in it as a normal black light does.
