Riz, I'm sorry to chime in so late, but tell Ernie Ball they are phatheads who don't deserve to even play Ukraine in the last 16. They should have sent you a 250k pot. Basically, a potentiometer is a variable resistor. If your variable resistor ranges from 0 - 250kohm, you have a reasonable spread of expression from whisper-quiet to full volume. Replacing this with a 0 - 25kohm will turn the pedal almost into an on/off switch. You will lose the range of expression.

A 25k pot is only useable for low-impedance outputs such as active basses or (more rarely) active guitars. If you fit it, you will probably find that your volume pedal is not satisfactory. Pots are cheap; so tell them to send you the right replacement if you do not like the one they sent you. If they refuse; tell them that there is someone on Guitarsite who knows the difference, even if they don't. If they want to look like idiots on a forum for the sake of the price of a pot, that is their problem. They should know better and supply the guitarist with the correct part.
