Way more likely to do with the alignment difference between the disks you are reading from various 1541 drives. It was always a struggle when I worked at Commodore, servicing the 1541's. It finally got to the point where we required customers to bring in their most important disks so we could align the drive so it would load commercial disks as well as "most" of their disks. A drive out of alignment will format and use a disk just fine on THAT drive, but you couldn't share it with anyone (unless their drive was also out of alignment in the same way).

The thinner the head the better the accuracy will be for the signal and noise rejection.
