use a dollar Bill or ciggareete paper to place under the pad that is sticking .
The squeakig has nothing to do with the sticking . Hirea good teacher or ask a pro to show you how to play Sa better. MJM

Is it the G# key? It is common on many horns for that key to stick. Use the dollar bill trick. Put the bill over the tone hole then gently press the key on to it, pull the bill out. ( don'tknow if a $20 bill will make it sound....richer? LOL )

After using the horn, prop the key open with a little piece of cork ( or whatever ) so it will air dry. Use a full length " fluffy stick " in the horn to absorb moisture ( but don't leave it in there permanently between plays ) and don't lay the case on its side, stand it up on end.
