I remember audio designer John Curl recommending a wirewound multiturn linear dual pot from Spectrol as a very nice sounding volume control.
Unfortunately he did not mention the actual part number.
Very interesting topic this about alternatives to common plastic pots like ALPS RK series.

Kind regards,
