Baritone Horn

The baritone horn is a member of the brass instrument family. It has a predominantly cylindrical bore as do the trumpet and trombone and uses a large mouthpiece much like those of a trombone or euphonium, although it is a bit smaller. Some baritone mouthpieces will sink into a euphonium's mouthpiece tube. It is pitched in B♭, one octave below the B♭ trumpet. It is a type of low brass instrument. In the UK the baritone is frequently found in brass bands. The baritone horn is also a common instrument in high school and college bands, as older baritones are often found in schools' inventories, however, these are gradually being replaced by intermediate-level euphoniums.

Famous quotes containing the words horn and/or baritone:

    He who goes oftenest round Cape Horn goes the most circumspectly.
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)

    We praise Him, we bless Him, we adore Him, we glorify Him, and we wonder who is that baritone across the aisle and that pretty woman on our right who smells of apple blossoms. Our bowels stir and our cod itches and we amend our prayers for the spiritual life with the hope that it will not be too spiritual.
    John Cheever (1912–1982)
