AS for old digital, they still built the analog components with more care than most of the "disposable" stuff now, much better AD/A but crappy analog. Blueface MXR was cool too, sort of spanning the end of analog/beginning of digital. I still have my pitch shifter...
My father in law has an e1010 just wasting away in a closet. So frustrating to hang out and see klon centaur, Marshall silver jubilee, first year mesa boogies, old electrics, and all the great ibanez pedals, and not take 'em home...and sadly we just jam on the fender g dec to some cheesy tracks (j/k that's fine too)
The modulation on the e1010 really knocks that out of the park for me. Knob twisters delight
