    Just bought another EB volume pedal (the former,older EB I had was stolen a while ago and I really missed it).
    After reading a few oppinions on TB and elsewhere,I decided to buy a 25K version of the EB Jr. because,as stated,"the 25k is intended for use with an active guitar/bass" and all my axes are active.
    Now,my question is:why the pot has PRECISELY 25 KOhms?
    Could have,say,50 KOhms?
    Is there a practical reason for this value?
    If yes,based on what?
    Thanks for your replies!

    It could have been 50k, yep. Or even 51... :D
    Why 25k ? Probably because they had to make a choice. :spit:

    I personnaly put a 10k for active basses, but well...
