I got my crybaby today, but I just can't tell when/how to turn the effect fully off?

it seems to affect my tone when I just take my foot off it, and there is a definite difference to having the pedal all the way up or down.

I'm THINKING that when its all the way up, its off. Is that correct?

and I know this is a dumb question, but the only other wah pedals I've used are either auto-wahs or morley wahs (<- I like the way they work, but too powerful sounding IMO)

Press down in the toe down position, there's a bypass switch under the toe that should turn off the wah

You have to push the toe all the way down until the switch clicks. With some Morleys, they shut off when you take your foot off, which might be where you got that impression, but Dunlop does things a little bit different.

Yeah, I used to spend ages trying to switch them on and off. You just have to tilt forward and click the pedal toe down.

I think the Q-wah switches off when you release it. I can't remember exactly.

should be a button under the foot board (take a look) should click when you hit it. that's the great thing about my korg overdrive pedal, when you step on the button it feels like you've just crushed a skull

My CryBaby 95Q goes into "by-pass" mode when the heel is fully down (lift your foot). It then has a timed circuit that delays the off for a second and then the pedal is fully off after that. That's from my instruction manual. Course, your model may act differantly.

No, its a 535Q he said. There is a bypass switch when the pedal is pressed forcefully in the up position, i own one.

Yep, toe down, press hard until a click is heard or felt through your foot and it should be off. The buffers on Dunlops though are not that great but you still should hear your integral, unprocessed tone.

yeah, I had a bad horsie for awhile, and I didn't realize you had to push so hard to get it on/off. Oh well, I'll get used to it. I like the crybaby better so far.

Yeah it gets more loose over time once you get the feel of it. You get used to it quickly if you are a frequent wah user. Personally, I'm not and even I got used to it quickly.
