    yes, the sound is purer and brighter now. A tone pot always cuts off the high frequencies a little bit, even if it's set on 10.

    Ive read something about that 500k pots cut differently the lows than 250k pots....
    So its no Problem to use One 500k instead of two 500k Pots and a condenser?

    Not lows but trebles. The higher the value of a tone potentiometer, the brighter it will be. 500k are brighter than 250k and they roll off the highs more. That's why they go along humbuckers as HB are not as bright as single coils. And because a single coil pickup is already bright, it's better to use 250k that are mild and cut off less treble.

    Btw, what is condenser? Do you mean capacitor?

    Mkay, yes the condenser is the capacitor.
