Default Volume pot for Simple SE

So, having already purchased one volume pot that didn't work in my Simple SE (ended up with mono instead of stereo) I submit the following for approval before I buy anything else I don't need.

Alps Potentiometer, Blue Velvet 100K Stereo, RK27112

Good choice? I've read all over this forum that I want a 25K pot or a 50K pot or a 100K pot but I'm having a hard time getting a handle on why I would want one value over another. Can anyone shed some light?

I got the 50k Alps blue velvet from here:
Tangent’s Parts Shop
100% genuine not a cheap Chinese knock off. This site is also a bit cheaper even with shipping compared to the one you linked.

I used a 100k per spec sheet. A geniune ALPS will work fine.

Glad you mentioned this. I had a mono pot as well. Ordered the Alps.
