Use a Pot or a Switch?
Potentiometers are relatively cheap, they take seconds to to install, and they have an infinite amount of settings from end to end, but pots are inaccurate, nearly impossible to match, and pretty though to recall to bring back a previous setting,

Switches can be perfectly matched, and recalled, but they are relatively expensive, they take much longer to set up and install, and they have a limited amount of settings within a given range.
