I'm replacing the volume pot on my strat copy. So I was looking on Ebay at the different ones, and I was wondering if the brand you buy affects the sound. I'm looking at a DiMarzio Pot and a lot of 4 pots, by some generic brand. I'm wondering if the DiMarzio One will have better sound? or If I should just get the 4 pack one?

CTS pots are the most popular and almost a standard, good quality too. Why buy pots on Ebay? Just go to your local music store. $4 a pot roughly

Edit:
For a volume pot, make sure you get audio taper

I don't have a local music store. That's why I'm buying off ebay.

Edit: Is the DiMarzio one audio taper?

The ebay listing doesn't specify the taper and you can't tell from looking at it so you'll have to ask the seller or search for another.

Humbucker from hell? Or them single coils with double the pickup in them?
And i have some Dimarzio 500k volume pots in my guitars they sound good, one of them i think has a scratch in it though cause it makes a scraching type of noise, when i turn it.
