In addition to the various amps with built in reverb, I think there are a couple of stand alone units.

Use an ECC81 with the two plates in parallel. 5-6 mA for each unit DC current (data sheet operative points are a good start). 10K is fine for this. The secondary of the transformer has to match the impedance of the tank.
Then you need another preamp that could be half of ECC83 or a op-amp.
Actually an op-amp used as a current amplifier will work fine. In fact the spring is basically a coil with its own inductance and the higher the frequency the higher current to drive it. What you don't want is reverb at low frequencies but this is easier to manage, both with the transformer and the coupling caps.

I would really like to find/see a simple way to put a Belton digi-log into an amp.

I always find one of my amps a bit on the dry side and would think that unit is compact enough to easily fit provided the support circuitry is not excessive.
Space is at a premium and to much extra stuff would be a factor
