Hmmm... Could be that you have a leak.. I had a similar problem with my alto saxaphone... How long have you been playing, it could also be your embouchure. Another problem that is common is that the octave valve is loose/leaking a bit while you play.. In that case, its easy to fix unless it is the pad that needs changing.. just press/ bend the octave key that is on the neck in, closer to the neck... (Sorry about the vague explanation)
