I got a wah pedal second hand and it's really creaky and stiff, and the sound of it goes through the amp and it's really annoying when you just hear "CREAK CREAK CREAK", so guys, how do I fix this? It's a Crybaby if that helps, and please don't say, "Get a new wah".
a little wd40 or some kinda hinge lubricant might help

Neither. It's the axle on the treadle. You'll see the axle and the flat spring that goes over it, add a little lube or spray some WD40 and it should cure it.
