Baritones & Euphoniums

The main difference between these horns is the bore size. The euphonium is conical (the tubing gradually gets bigger from the mouthpiece to the bell), and the baritone is cylindrical (it maintains a consistent bore size throughout the major portion of the instrument, which means it has a brighter sound). The baritone instrument is considered a small-bore instrument. It is pitched in BBb and typically has three valves. It is a traditional instrument of the British brass band. The euphonium has a larger bore (and is conical) and a darker sound. Euphoniums will have three or four valves.
