Besides guitar pedals, whats some fun but affordable DIY audio projects to try?

I'm getting into building pedals now, and its fun as hell. But knowing me and my thirst for knowledge and experiences, I'm going to want more after a while.

I like the SCA preamps, but I don't like the price. having to buy the whole enclosure and power supply as well as the preamp itself is kind of a dealbreaker to my budget. Looking at almost a grand just to get started with one channel of audio.

Is there anything out there, possibly another mic preamp, thats more affordable, possibly sub $500?
