The fact is, while Arturo would sound great on just about any horn, he does not play a $200 student model horn. In fact, he is very picky about the horn he plays. Why do you think that is? From all accounts, he loves his Wild Thing.
Just about every pro I have every met/worked with/played with has been picky about their equipment to some degree. I say "just about" in the event there is someone who wasn't, but I really cannot recall a single one.
Some are fanatical in their loyalty to a given brand/model, others are always looking for the next thing, even more are constantly tinkering with what they have.

It's true that a good player can make most any functioning trumpet sound good. The thing with better equipment, it makes sounding good so much easier.
