 Tone question

I attended a recital recently in which there were two college professors playing. The difference in tone between them really struck me.....one had a much "rounder" sound and the other a more "strident" sound. I don't know what instruments they were playing, but pretty sure the "strident" one was on a loree. They were similar sized people, with the rounder sound one being a very slightly rounder person, but both of them were on the short side.
So...wondering if the more substantial tone has anything to do with the somewhat more substantial body or should I assign it to reed, tone concept, or just give up trying to figure it out? The more substantial tone was from a player from a different, more humid climate than here, and probably lower altitude, so you would think that person would have been more likely to have reed problems than the local resident.
Oh, and listening to myself last night I'm not in the ballpark of either one of them.
