Airy, Spitty sound, difficult articulation
So I've been playing for nine years now, and I have just started having this problem here. I play alto, use a 3.5 Vandoren reed, Meyer 7 mouth piece, and a Prestini intermediate alto sax.
I'm getting these airy, spitty sounds when I'm playing, and having difficulty getting notes to sound out correctly when playing anything lower than a G. I've tried swapping out reeds, changed embouchures, moved my ligature around a bit, but it's still not working. I have to play louder to hit those lower notes, and they are still not sounding quite right.
Any ideas here? I've never had these problems except when I first started out learning, and it's really kind of embarrassing sounding the way I am right now.
