which pots to use?

I just got a bridge evolution for my dbk. I don't really know about electronics at all, but should i use a 500k pot? what brand do you use if this is true. and what would happen if I just kept the same pot in my dbk?

Both the volume and tone pots in your DBK should be 500K already. Since you're putting in a replacement humbucker, you don't need to change the value. (If you were using single-coil pups, you would want 250K.)
