It may be helpful to remember why a squeak occurs. A squeak happens when one part of the reed (usually left versus right) vibrates faster than the other. Since you get this affect regularly I assume it is on various reeds somewhat ruling out an irregularity in the cane.


Ensure that your reed is centered on the mouthpiece from the butt the way to the tip (equal amounts of mouthpiece rail and table visible on both sides). Also make sure to look at the system from the side and ensure the tip of the reed is covering the entire tip rail.


This of course assumes that your rails are even and your ligature is affixed so that it "binds" evenly as well.

The last bit would be to make sure you have the mouthpiece evenly in your mouth. It could be that all the above is fine but you angle the mouthpiece unevenly in your mouth causing one side to vibrate a longer length of the reed (check the tooth marks on the mouthpiece or mouthpiece patch).


..........hope that helps.
