      when i first start playing, no problem, but after 1/2 hr both middle g/g# squeak all the time; driving me nuts.. any ideas?

      tried diff reeds/mps; the only fix is if i loosen embouchure alot & press g key extra hard, which isnt practical .. pads are relatively new, didnt see any light leaks


        Hi Jazz Cat
        I get a warbly sound playing the low C with my Guardala MB II fat boy tenor. Tip opening is 8* or 116. When I blow my 7* mouthpieces there is no warble. I assume the larger tip opening contributes to a warble wound.


          sounds weird to me….did you try going from both octaves? I would experiment that way, and also going from thos notes, and going to those notes to see if it is indeed just those notes cause it doesn’t make sense
