You might try some other reeds. I play the K10M myself and do not have
that problem at all, but I ran a cross a box of alto sax reeds recently
that ALL seemed to suffer from chirps on note starts. The possibility
exists, of course, that your mouthpiece is damaged or defective.

If you have to mic a saxophone, the rest of the band is TOO LOUD!
