The FET will most likely have a higher transconductance, maybe more input
capacitance. It will also have a high outpute impedance in its linear
operational range. If you do not need a socket replacement, the same circuit
could probably be adapted, with some value changes to perform the same
function. You have to watch out, however, that your original circuit
application is tthat of a linear amplifier. All bets are off if you use
secondary screen emission such as in a transitorn operation.
