Some instruments are sharper, and others are flatter, but really, pitch depends mainly on the reed and the way it is played.

For example, Liang Wang of the NY Phil used to play a Laubin (pretty flat) in an orchestra that tunes to 442.

Besides, pitch is a relative thing, and some people have inherently different pitches based on the way they play.
