    I'm trying to find a satisfactory volume pot that spins very freely and has a taper that doesn't ramp up too fast from 0 when using a lot of gain. RS pots fail both criteria so they aren't an option. So far I've had the best luck with off the shelf pots from GC, but they are inconsistent. Any recommendations?

    Try a bourns premium .Allparts has them .
    250KA and smooth not as loose as some budget brands but easy for pinky volume swells

    Have you used them with a lot of gain? The taper that works with a clean tone can ramp up too abruptly when doing swells with gain.
