Re: Parts For Shaka Braddah
If you cannot find the J201, try NTE458. Also the MPF102 and 2N5457 will work if you select jfets with enough gain. Other possible subs are the 2N5484, 2N5486, BF245A or 2SK117A.  
There is a test jig to select jfets for the Fet Muff article at and it can be used to select devices for my mini-booster which is in the Shaka.  
Devices in the test setup that require a drain resistor of 6.8k and higher to reach 1/2 V+ on the drain would work well.
