My personal opinion is that they're nice when integrated in a synth 
(especially in the Putney, because you can get feedback from 
the speakers). It's nice to put your oscillator mix into one and then 
send it to the filter.

Some peole have put 17" reverb tanks in their 2600s. The Moog 5" unit 
sounds bad, but that's part of the character. The Buchla 212 has a good 
reverb built-in.
