Re: My alto constantly squeaks when i play it!
It might be your mouthpiece and reed together. Sometimes, when you get the wrong amount of resistance it doesn't sound right and tends to squeak. Either look into getting a new mouthpiece, or test a lot of different reed types and strengths out to solve the problem. If you're using the Blue box reeds, you might want to look into ZZ's or Javas, sometimes the french file cut doesn't work for people unless they go softer. Also, I've been having tone quality problems lately when I don't breathe enough, maybe that's it.
