Trumpets are for extroverts - Lee Morgan
I think it can be either the horn or the person behind the horn IMHO. I took a Leblanc “MF” horn in for a yearly acid cleaning once and the tech noticed that the lead pipe was spread out just a little farther than the tuning slide, so he gently moved the lead pipe in line with the tuning slide and handed me the horn, (after cleaning and maint.). Well my “D” above the staff was so sharp I couldn’t even lip it down. So he said here let me squeeze the lead pipe at the tuning slide when you play and the D was right back in tune. So he undid his straightning work and all was well. There can be horn-related influences that can effect your horn’s ability to slot certain notes. Additionally it can be the person also ! It’s good to have someone else play the horn to verify what it is not !!!
