what value for rg 1570 volume pot?

I just got a rg1570 with tone zone blue velvet air norton. Prior owner replaced volume pot. The volume pot has 95% volumes reduction in 1st 5% of travel. It curently has a 300k pot. Is this the right value?
Could someone point me to a link for the right one.
Thanks

I would put a minimum of 500k in there, but you can also go up to 1m if you want.

Also check the back of the pot to see if it is linear or logarithmic, this would account for the high roll off in the first 5% of travel.

Thanks for the reply, that linear logarithmic thing makes a lot of sense.
