fetzer valve questions.

I got a j201 JFET TRANSISTOR and I' ve decided to make a Fetzer Valve Preamp from ROG. Can I subtitute a fixed-value resistor to the trimpot in the schematic? If yes, What value...I'm gonna use a 12 wallwart to power the FV preamp and the power amp. Help please

You can use a resistor, but it is hard to know the right value. You could use a 100k pot temporarily wired in to the circuit. Find what works, and then put the right value in its place.

Ignore the values in this image (I just used Google to pull something up).

Use a 100k pot, and the resistor should be about 4.7k. Once you have the pot to a spot that works, measure the resistance between the middle lug and the resistor. Then use the closest resistance value you have.

Like already mentioned, it would be pretty much impossible to tell a resistor value that works without measuring. Jfets have so wide manufacturing tolerances that even if you'd find the right value for one particular Jfet, it wouldn't necessarily work even with another Jfet of the same type.
