If the sax has an adjustable felt bumper on the low Eb keyguard, you might try opening the low Eb key to increase the venting by unscrewing the piece that holds the felt. If the bumper is not adjustable, you can remove the guard and trim the felt with a razor knife. Be careful to do this in small increments. If you go too far you will be back at the shop having a new felt installed. A very general rule of thumb that I use is that the low Eb key should open nearly the same as the low C key and that opening is at least the distance equal to 1/3 the diameter of the tonehole. Hope this helps.
