Have you messed around with the headjoint any? Sometimes rolling in/out will help you produce a better sound. Also, if it's open hole, make sure you are covering the holds. Having a correct position can change everything. Watch yourself in the mirror to make sure you are playing straight across, too. If you play too far rolled in, then you will block of the airstream and nothing will come out. Too far rolled out, and your airstream will miss the hole and nothing will come out. Play around with your positioning some.
