Bombardino

The baritone (tuba) and its close relative, the bombardino, are similar in appearance to the tuba, but smaller. As a result, their sound is pitched higher than the tuba (one octave), but below the trumpet and horn.

The bombardino is also known as a euphonium, which is derived from Greek, meaning "soft voice".

In the music of Puerto Rico, the bombardino is prominent in the danza music genre.
