Reading the story on Sonic State today about a new sample CD of Soviet vintage synths reminded me of something I've spotted looking for Ebay of the Day stories: There's a hell of a lot of weird Soviet music stuff out there. Astrasound, a shop on Dutch Ebay, seem to have a big stock of vintage analogue effects, like this awesome-looking analogue guitar multi-effects pedal for $349, and this tape delay for £239, which looks like something out of the control room at Chernobyl. It looks like the items are dead stock, shipped direct from the factory in Russia, but you can't be sure. Then there's This guy, who seems to be operating from Riga in Latvia, selling a Czech guitar amp, a Ukranian rackmount compressor and a Russian drum synth. Everything you could ever want to know about Soviet Synths is here.
