  The Euphonium
The euphonium is a brass instrument, which means that sound is produced by vibrating the air column with the lips.
The first occurence of the unusual double belled euphonium appeared in the late 1880's, but they ceased to be manufactured in the 1960's, mainly because of the impractical nature of the instrument.
One of the earliest occurences of the euphonium in orchestral music was in Richard Strauss' "Don Quixote", in 1896 (this was also the first time that a mute had been asked for) and soon after this, Mahler used a euphonium in his 7th Symphony.

  Euphonium - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The so-called American-style euphonium, featuring three valves on the front of the instrument and a curved forward-pointing bell, was predominant in American school bands throughout most of the twentieth century and was almost universally labeled a "baritone" by both band directors and composers; this is probably responsible for much of the baritone/euphonium confusion.
In addition, the euphonium is sometimes used in older orchestral works as a replacement of its predecessors, such as the Wagner tuba, the bass trumpet, or the ophicleide.

 Deep House Page Forums: Musical instrument of the day - THE EUPHONIUM
It is a valved brass instrument whose bore constantly increases in size from the valve section to the bell - this is called "conical bore", as distinguished from "cylindrical bore" instruments which maintain a constant tubing diameter for a greater portion of the instrument's total length.
Instruments similar to the euphonium include the American-style baritone horn, the British baritone (which being a saxhorn is more cylindrical and trombone-like than the American baritone), and the Germany baryton and tenorhorn.
The euphonium is not often used by symphony orchestras, (its most notable use being its part in Holst's Planets Suite) so its main venues are various wind bands, such as school bands, brass bands, marching bands, and military bands, where it is frequently featured as a solo instrument.

 Baritones and Euphoniums
Baritones and euphoniums are valved brass instruments that have a range similar to the slide trombone, higher than a tuba and about an octave below the trumpet.
