    Most likely it's your reed or mouthpiece. I would try a newer reed, and probably a stiffer reed than what you are using. If the mouthpiece has a fairly closed tip, like a #3 or a Selmer C*, you may want to try a mouthpiece with a more open facing. Have you changed mouthpieces or done anything recently? That may be part of the problem too. Jim
