DIY Amp Circuits

I’m currently looking for an analog post stage circuit
for my Techtar, to apply some “real” amp-sounds.

There are many DIY amp circuit websites out there. Here I start to list
some sites which are most useful to me.

Catarina Mota (ted-)talks about open materials

A wonderful talk about smart materials and the maker culture.
I think it contains lots of well nailed statements.

“…There was a time when we understood how things work and how they were made, so we could build and repair them… Many of these do it yourself practises were lost during the second half of the 20th century. But know the maker community and the open source model are bringing this kind of knowledge about how things work and what they’re made of back into our lives…”
