    i think most red neons are actually more pinky orange than red.
    i think the only way to make it redder would be using a piece of red transparent plastic of some description

    Your SOL. CC/Neons generally aren't the exact color they say, they tend to be a bit brighter

    Its been my experience that the pics displayin the neons/Cold cathodes in the advertising are altered. I was in the same boat. Saw a cain ass red cathode advertised, looked good. I got it, was pink as.

    Got a green one now - Looks alot closer to the pick then the red ever did....

    But, I did have some success using red celefain, but that does make it a fair bit dimmer.
