    Crybaby users.......I just wanted to know.........does a crybaby wah automatically return back up when stepped upon(by virtue of a spring or something?)......or does it have to be brought back by the heel of your foot????........Are there specific crybaby pedals that do this or none at all??...I couldn't find these answers on the net....so posted here.....

    Nope, it doesn't automatically come up. Use your foot to bring it back up.

    Actually its better that it doesn't "spring" back automatically.
    That ways you can use the wah to modultate the sound by keeping the wah fixed at some desired position - while you play.

    And when you wish to rock the wah back and forth, you can always use your foot.

    The 95Q is Spring loaded and turns on or off when you put your foot on it... Pretty convenient especially for songs where you have to keep pumping the Wah up and down quickly like RATM's "Bulls On Parade".

    If you like the Cocked Wah tone a lot, you could try the 535Q or Zakk Wylde's Wylde Wah. 535 is the mother of all Crybabys in terms of versatility. I liked the Wylde Wah's thickness on distorted tones. Check out the tones on YouTube, in particular, look for ProGuitarShop's demos.

    Careful with the Vox.. The chinese ones have a bad repute. You could also look into Morleys if you like a more modern Wah sound thats a little more subtle and doesn't really eat up your whole guitar tone. I have heard good things about the Ibanez Weeping Demon too.
