1845 - Today, we're travelling to the Geek side of things. It's not everyday that I get to talk about my other passion - Music. The Euphonium - often mistaken for a Tuba - was created. It was also coined in later years as "P.T. Barnums' Euphonium. The word itself comes from the Greek word Euphonos - or Sweet voiced.
The Euphonium is pitched in concert B♭. Although a 3 valve instrument, professional Euphoniums have a 4th valve for compensation.
