  Do you have a problem with metrics ? As Piher are european Pots they
have metric mess. of course.
But apart from that they are for the price really ok. Go for them, if
you cannot affort P&G.
What about Panasonic ?
They are in my Behringer Eurodesk mixing console. They must be very
cheap, although they are very smooth
and it looks like they are reliable too.
