  Baritone or Euphonium?
Some are: a euphonium has four valves, a baritone three; if it’s in a bass clef it’s a euphonium, if it’s in treble clef it’s a baritone; a baritone is little euphonium; a baritone has the bell pointed forward, a euphonium points up; and (attributed to Robert King) a euphonium is a baritone played well.
Also, the name baritone is sometimes confused with baritone saxophone or the baritone voice.
While the early samples of this type of "hybrid" instrument may have had a sound nearly centered between a baritone and a euphonium tone, the desire for a smoother, fuller sound has led the manufacturers to gradually change the instrument’s characteristics.

Baritone (French: baryton; German: Bariton; Italian: baritono) is most commonly the type of male voice that lies between bass and tenor.
The early 19th century development of the baritone in opera was primarily due to the bel canto style, with Donizetti, Bellini and of course Verdi opening up new avenues of performance for male voice.
The leading Italian Verdi baritone of the 1970s and 1980s was Piero Cappuccilli, while Britain's Thomas Allen was considered the most versatile baritone of his generation in regards to repretoire, spanning the literature from Mozart to Verdi, French, Russian and modern English music.
