Great quiz. Except that baritone is not a word for a musical instrument. It's a descriptor for a musical instrument. It doesn't match any of the other words in the quiz. While you could call a baritone sax, baritone clarinet, baritone trombone etc a "baritone" for short, the word baritone itself is not a word for a musical instrument. You could always replace it with "guitar" :P

actually, it is a musical instrument. It often gets confused with the euphonium http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baritone_horn . People call it a baritone

Baritone threw me, because it's an anagram of taborine, which is a small drum.

Quizmaster - I think you should fix this somehow.

I always thought 'baritone' was a male voice pitch that could be applied to describe deeper toned instruments than the usual ones. As such, it should not really be classed as a musical instrument by itself, unless you're classing 'the voice' as an instrument, which it isn't.

"Baritone" is a word used to describe a particular vocal range. However, it's also a brass instrument, similar to the euphonium.

yea that how it is in my country aswell, but apparently in english/american it IS used for an instrument. I ve came across it before in a quiz, so I knew it by now, and got it right, but I still couldnt read/see it as anything else as how you would read tenor or soprano.

I'd have to agree that "baritone" should be "baritone horn." If you use "french horn," you should be consistent and use "baritone horn." "Baritone" can also refer to a voice, a guitar, a sax, etc.

Yes, but in the classification of musical instruments, simply saying "Baritone" will either refer to the marching baritone or the euphonium, its concert equivalent.

I know this is a full eight years late but as a low brass player this confusion is one of my triggers. Euph and baritone are not concert and marching counterparts. There are several works of symphonic and wind band literature that call for either euphonium or baritone horn as separate requests, for good reason. Because of the difference in the geometrical construction of the two instruments' brass tubing, the euphonium produces a mellower, darker, sweeter timbre than the brassier, brighter baritone, even when the two are playing the same pitch.

Clare, I hope you are terrible at the clarinet. Nothing personal, it's just that once I was in a play as a girl named Clare, and she was named after her mom's favorite instrument, the clarinet, same reason she played the clarinet. But she was really bad at it and was always complaining about having broken her reed. And she called her clarinet 'Bessie' and talked to it. And I just saw your name, and that you did a musical instruments quiz, and had a good laugh, and thought 'Wouldn't it be funny if she was bad at the clarinet?'

I was bad at the clarinet and I often had a broken reed, but my name isn't Clare, and I didn't name my clarinet. If I had, I would have named it, "Why Didn't I Choose the Flute Instead?"

Extremely easy (finished with 2:46 left). I agree with others that a baritone is not an instrument, but rather a description of several... And I suggest to the quizmaster to give far less time.

Baritone is an instrument as described above. The word baritone is also used to describe types of instruments, but in this context, yes, it is an instrument.

I don't want to start a whole argument, but aren't Baritone and Euphonium different names for the same instrument?

Very similar, but the Euphonium the tube's width is always increasing and in Baritone it stays the same width for most of the length of the tube(This gives it a brighter sound)

Ooh, I know some baritonists who would be offended by this comment. Although they are rather similar, a euphonium has a warmer sound (it's basically the brass version of a cello), while a baritone has, for lack of a better word, a meatier sound.

No, the same way a trumpet and a flugelhorn aren't the same instrument. There's a difference in timbre.

Never heard of baritone being employed as a term for a musical instrument, just as a descriptor (a singer's range, a saxophone, etc). Also, euphonium is not something I've heard of either. Are these US terms? Thanks
