The manual (page 16) says that the last preamp tube (V5) is the Phase Inverter. Doesn't list any preamp tube being used as a reverb driver.

As a comparison, the newer Recto-Verb 25 tube chart does show reverb drive and return from a preamp tube.

According to the schematic, the reverb is opamp driven.
