Remove the four screws on the (probably) plastic covering plate.

OK.... you are cheap like me....(Remove the four tiny screws over the plastic (probably) covering examine your reeds, are they green? Then they are probably brass (tin/copper)swab- then immediately whipe the lower (non-used) ones with a mixture of vinegar and salt. They should sparkle clean....see if that improves the tone....if so....continue through the entire instrument and then wipe with a solvent oil like WD40 or Solv-All.
