that you can plug the reverb tank RCAs into so you can use your own time-based effects pedals?

Can't be hard to make switchable impedances and the other things you'd need?

You could even have RCA ports on it to keep using your old reverb tank.

I think I've seen someone on the net do that, simply with adapters on the RCA jacks. Or you could swap the cable if there is an RCA cable that plugs into the amp, with one that has RCAs on one side and 1/4" jacks on the other.

edit: found the video

You're sure you didn't reverse the leads? Pedals squeal when plugged in backwards. Also you can adjust the reverb knob.
