I'd first check the reeds to make sure they are flat. If they aren't,
you need to try to determine the cause of the warpage. In very dry
some ligatures don't hold the reed down properly. I switched to a metal
ligature when I was having this difficulty. The reed guard can affect
this, also.In Philadelphia, which is humid, I had good results keeping
my reeds in those cheap Vito holders. In a dryer climate (South Dakota)
I use a Selmer (glass plate) holder.
Sometimes, the cane itself is unstable.
If the reeds are flat, have someone reface the mouthpiece.
