I just had an idea. Some amps have a reverb tank, but no footswitch, or the footswitch doesn't control the reverb. I Googled around and couldn't find much. Shouldn't it be possible to have a footswitch connected directly to the RCA jacks and turn the reverb off and on?

It's called a hardwired reverb.

I don't understand why you would wanna change it while you're playing. Just set it and go. My reverb is always on and has been at the same level for 7 years.

It's called "individual taste".

I suppose you would want something similar to a bypass switcher (true or buffered....buffered might be better) but with RCA jacks instead of 1/4". I thought about something similar to had a rack unit in place of my spring tank a few years ago.

Reverb on cleans is great but not so much on distortion.

it can work great with crunch, but its how much that screws things up...usually I set my reverb to work well with my dirty sounds and go from there. Too much reverb and it gets washed out, but then again im mainly into classic rock tones so it leaves room for some verb etc.
