This video was recorded in October 2015, when LED 'filament' style lamps for household use were still relatively new and expensive items.

The LED lamp used here is clear glass, and contains multiple LED strings to simulate the effect of older tungsten filament lamps.

The incandescent lamp is also clear glass, and is a 60 watt type.
