In British brass arhan, it is typically treated as a treble-clef instrument, while in American band music, parts may be written in either treble clef or bass clef, or both.

As with the other conical-bore instruments, the cornetflugelhornhornand tubathe euphonium’s tubing excepting the tubing in the valve section, which is necessarily cylindrical gradually increases in diameter throughout its length, resulting in a softer, gentler tone compared to cylindrical-bore instruments such as the trumpettrombonesudrophoneand baritone horn.

While this instrument is a conical-cylindrical bore hybrid, somewhere between the classic baritone horn and euphonium, it was almost universally labeled a “baritone” by both band directors and composers, thus contributing to the confusion of terminology in the United States.
