can i substitute fets in the shaka3?
hi everyone,  
this is my first time posting on aron's forum, i've been reading it a bit recently, so now i'm getting into the action.  
i'm just about to build a shaka 3 and hot tubes preamp (among other things - i've been neglecting pedal building for a while) The problem is that i can't readily acquire j201 fets (or irf510 mosfets, for that matter) being in Australia, i have a more limited access to electronics stuff, and i don't really want to go mail order for little stuff.  
So, can i substitute other fets for these? like 2n5484, 2n5459, mpf102? etc... what about the mosfets?  
any opinions are greatly appreciated.
