Volume pot questions..

Could someone school me on the tonal differences between 250K/500K/1000K pots? For discussions sake in a single hum equipped guitar.

250k-Warm(Used commonly on SC's)
500k-Bright(used commonly with HB's)
1000K-Shrill(Rarely used but it's good for those 50ft+ cables.)

A higher rating means it will allow more brightness.

Re: Volume pot questions..

Are there any other characteristics besides looser/tighter rotation and the brightness/darkness?
