This is a week ago. I almost kept silent about it, but you deserve to
know the full truth, after Kim said:

It actually sais "greater than 20k"
I did not look it up but took out the multimeter and in praxis the
newer EDPs go to full Feedback arround 9 kOhm and the older ones
Kim said, the value had to be lowered to meet the tolerances in
Amazing tolerances, I must say... sure, there are a lot of pedals
that mechanically dont use the whole range of the pot, but due to
those, the good ones we recomment (I also mesured the FV-50L and it
goes to exactly 20k) are only used over half their range?
Is that fair? Well, its how it is now.
At least I wanted to say here what the real value is for those who
want something acurate.
Now, to Per, I was going to say: "Since you have a new EDP, if you
buy a 10k Bourns potentiometer you are fine, since those are probably
5 or 10% tolerated."
But then you said that you are happy with a 250k pedal?? Probably a
log, but even then...
