Default 5k or lower stereo log pot?

Title says it all. Does anyone know of a quality log taper stereo pot in a value of 5k or less?

Seems like Alps RK27 is manufactured in 5k but not stocked anywhere I looked.

I know I can use a linear and fake the log law but would rather not.

Mouser has some nice Taiwan alpha parts...here's a 5K dual audio taper...

RV24BF-10-15R1-A5K Alpha (Taiwan) | Mouser

They also have a 1 K dual audio taper in stock.

The pots are quite nice.

I recently purchased 50pc very similar as described for the price of TEN.
Here is a link
50pcs Dual Stereo Potentiometer Pot B20K shaft 15mm | eBay

Hope that keeps the price down for constructors.

Thanks for the links! Unfortunately the Alpha is a carbon element, not conductive plastic, although I suppose I could give it a try.
