- (musici): A valved brass instrument, a sax horn, the tenor of the tuba family of instruments, having the appearance very similar to that of a tuba. It is similar to and often used instead of a "Baritone" horn. (A true Baritone has a smaller bore than a Euphonium and does not sound as "full" though it covers the same range of tones.)
