Anyone ever play a Polivoks?

Pro Audio Electronics Repair in Tampa has a Russian Polivoks on The Facebook. I've never even heard of it, but I don't get out much . . .

 

The description:

 

This is the (in)famous Polivoks synth from the other side of the Iron Curtain! A classic Russian synthesizer with a raw and aggressive sound. This repair was extensive and required us to work directly with the designer of the synth as well as reading original schematics in Cyrillic.

The fact there's a Highway To Hell and only a Stairway To Heaven says a lot about anticipated traffic numbers

I have one. It's a really fantastic sounding instrument. Very simple with a lot of character. You can split the oscillators and play two notes at a time. Sound to me is somewhere between an MS20 and a Minimoog(minus the third oscillator). It's one of my favorites, if you can get your hands on a working one for a good price you totally should grab it. You won't regret it. The keyboard is TERRIBLE but you get used to it.
