emphasis knob on a compressor.

Hi,
I have a Marshall ED-1 that I bought recently, and the emphasis knob is broken off and so, useless. I can't seem yo fond the type of pot to replace it anywhere, except for on ebay. My problem is that the only value so can find is 500k whereas there is a 100k pot in it already.
My question is, what effect will the different pot value have on the pedal?
Thanks.

You could always see if your local Marshall dealer can order the part for you.

I did, and he was quoting 20 odd euro, whereas I can get 4 of the 500k's for 18 online

You only require one knob though? Why does it matter if you can get 4 of them for 18?

Sorry if I was unclear.
I need a 100K pot, and one of them from Marshall costs 20 euro.
I found on Ebay 4 500K pots for 18.

Obviously the 500k's are a much better deal, cause they are also described as higher than standard quality, but I'm asking what difference will this new value have on the pedal.
