That tone stack seems to be taken right out of a Vox AC-30. Looking at it in my spice modeling program, it appears there would be a very substantial difference between a 50p and 250p. With the bass maxed and the treble at 12:00 (how I would set AC-30 controls), the mid notch with the 50p is centered at about 1KHz and is quite deep. With a 250p the mid notch would be very shallow and centered around 600Hz.
That's assuming the treble pot is log taper, as in the Vox. And I've got the output Z of the cathode follower as 612 ohms.
