Polivoks Clone Limited to 100 Units & A Note From Creators Alex Pleninger & Alexey Taber


The new Polivoks clone from Alex Pleninger is now available for order, and for auction on the official site for the new synth. The units will be limited to 100 units. The starting price if you go the auction route? $1850. The buy it now price? A whopping $4000. Before you blame the creators Alex Pleninger and Alexey Taber, Pleninger asked me to post the following for them. BTW, it's worth noting $1850 for a brand new Polivoks is only slightly more than just half of a new Minmoog Model D, and that's for a limited run of only 100 synths. The $4000 BIN is a cap to ensure it does not cost anyone more than that, so technically they are limiting themselves, not the buyer. If it were auction only, the price could theoretically go above that and technically there is nothing forcing the price to hit $4k.

via Alex:

"Hello everybody,

Many of you could already hear that our Polivoks' first and only run is on auction now.

Do believe, this decision is not ours and has no connection with us at all.

Anyway, we are still very proud of what we've done - the synthesizer promises to take it's humble place in history, at least we hope so :)

Thanks to everybody for supporting us and for kind words!

Sincerely yours

Alex Pleninger and Alexey Taber"

It's rare that we see a message like this, so thanks to Alex for sending this in. One thing to consider, is the number of units is limited to 100 so the high price will make the decision for many to skip one easier. Not to mention, there are still originals out there.
