Swollen reed on saxophone mouthpiece

Cane reeds will sometimes swell when moist, and depending on the particular reed and particular mouthpiece sometimes the swelling can be bad enough to push the reed away from the table of the mouthpiece, functionally lengthening the break, wreaking havoc with low notes in particular, but making the reed/mouthpiece feel stuffy or dead. This video demonstrates the physical effect that reed swelling can sometimes have and how to fix it quickly so you can get back to playing.

The effect seen in this video happens most usually on a mouthpiece with a very flat table, but even then it only happens sometimes. Not all mouthpieces have a flat table!
