Most amatuer flutists are sharp and some professionals too, also French horns! What is even worse is that concert halls get warmer as the concerts progress and most of the wind instruments get sharper with the largers ones getting the sharpist.
At times I am plagued by conductors who tune the players at the beginning of the concert or rehearsal and force the tubas up in pitch only to complain later that they were sharp during the concert!
