"best" master volume control?
I'm searching for the "best" MV control in a marshall style amp. On Ampage and the net I've found several circuits:  
- simple 1M pot before the PI;  
- double pot after the PI;  
- "crossed" single pot "Matchless" style;  
- double pot (swapped to bias 220K res) "Ken Fischer" style.  
I'm intrested in opinions about, for tone and reliability problems.
