potentiometers good and bad

What is a good pot?
Brands?

Bought some Kaish push-pulls from aliexpress... anyone reviews?

For my blazer I bought Bourns pots.. feel okay..

Value for money?

CTS and Dimarzio are pricy .. can't say they feel or sound different.. but maybe last longer..

Then caps... mylar from Alie.. 50 for 1 euro.. sound good to me...

Dimarzio and fender pots are just re-branded CTS pots. The cts stuff is great, the burns stuff is good. Burns has a few different series of pots ranging from lower end to extremely nice.

I have never heard of Kaish, I may have seen them as OEM and not realized it though.

Mylar is the standard material for most caps. Some people like ceramic, and some oil and paper. I can't tell much difference either way and usually ends up that mylar are the cheapest and easiest to find in the right value. What value cap did you go with ?
