Some people naturally voice higher or lower in certian registers than others. It could be you, it could the the mouthpiece or barrel or clarinet itself. Yes, first have someone else play your clarinet warmed up to see if they have the same result then you can decide if it's you or the clarinet. Not only can a 66-67mm barrel make the difference but different makes can also make a big difference because of the different bore configurations. And sometimes one needs to pull out the middle joint a bit to make the intonation more uniform through out, even the bell if the break notes are sharper than the rest of the instrument. The lowest notes are more forging. Believe it or not, some bells will actually help the intonation in the clarion register but that should be a last resort and one would need to try many different brands to find out. The mouthpiece and barrel should be your first concern.
