The standard cap value is .047. The smaller the value, the less high tones it will roll off. I've heard of players using anything from .022 to .1 depending on their pickups, amp, effects, & musical genre.

If a guitar has all single-coils, 250K is fine; if there's one or more humbuckers, it's generally 500K. I've been told that 1M is best, but I've never made any comparison.

Thank you for your answer. I'll go pots 250k volume and 250k tones.
From what I read humbucker JB also plays better with pots 250k.

I utilize straight decrease for tone pots principally in light of the fact that I only occasionally utilize the tone control in addition to its directionless expensive. be that as it may, I've never observed ppl utilize direct decrease for vol control. Best Dissertation Writing Services
