Synth of the week : Soviet "Pif" Synth
Pif le Synth
I found Soviet Synth pretty sexy but this one is very funny : It's a "Pif le chien" Synth!
Pif is a french famous comics character, and......belongs to the PCF (Parti Communiste Français)!!!
So this is the first communist merchandising synth ever built :)
