T1AL fuse for Soundcraft mixer

    I just bought a nice Soundcraft EPM6 mixer and see that it
    has a T1AL-250v fuse. From searching on the net this seems
    to be a very common fuse on electronic stuff coming out of
    the UK.

    I'm in North America and I can't find anyone on the net
    that lists these fuses (tried Mouser, Allied, Radio Shack,
    Digi-key etc). Nor can I find any conversion chart to
    something equivalent. I can't even find a specification
    for the fuse, even in the UK.

    The mixer is new so I don't need a fuse right away but
    would like to have one on hand. Can someone provide me
    me an American equivalent to the T1AL fuse ? Thanks.

    If it's a 1A fuse 5mm around and 20mm long, look for an F1 or a GMA-1.
    Your local auto parts store should have them.

    Yeah, the auto parts stores won't have slow-blow fuses in stock, but
    Digi-Key should. And Cain Electronics in Norfolk, VA definitely does.

    Thanks guys for your help. I just got a very quick answer back from
    Littelfuse whom I should have asked before bothering you. The fuse
    is indeed a 1 amp time delay 5x20 mm inline fuse.

    So for the sake of future searchees the Littelfuse equivalent to the
    T1AL-250v is 218001, available from Mouser, etc.
