Polivoks keyboard replacement/parts

Has anyone ever replaced the keyboard on a Polivoks with a better keyboard? I have one that has multiple broken/repaired keys, and being that it's not a great feeling keyboard in the first place, I was wondering about the possibility of replacing it with something else. But because of the different nature of the keyboard with the magnets and reed switches (plus schematics in russian) I wasn't sure if it's feasible.

Also, is there anyone selling individual replacement keys? A number of the keys on mine have been reglued multiple times and really need to be replaced if it doesn't make sense to try to swap out the entire keyboard.

Thanks,

Mark

You can only find replacement keys from another Polivoks, they’re not standart ones and manufacturing ceased like 30 years ago...
You can definitely replace the whole keyboard with something different, need to look at schematics, maybe even modern MIDI keyboard is fine re contact pairs. Just a lot of hand work. BTW there are kits to MIDI-ise Polivoks, AFAIK.
