Hi. Why all my reeds play way much better if I put some kind of separator between the bottom end of the reed and the table of the mouthpiece? That is valid on both my mouthpieces: Jupiter 4C(came with the tenor) and Yamaha 5C. The effect is more noticeable on the Jupiter, though. If I don't use some folded paper, or thin plastic like describes, the reed is more prone to squeaking.
