Okaaaaay ... I'll bite ... What the heck is a lead-filled reverb

I remember the 'spring' reverb units. I used to have a factory 
one.  Kid across the street had a home grown one in a wooden 
box.  That was great fun ... you could roll a {quarter || other 
large coin} down the springs get that great 'bowling alley' 
sound ... and when the coin hit the end of the box it would 
scare the heck out of the cat!  ;-)

Heck, luddite that I am, I still think I prefer springs to today's 
fancy electronic boogers.
