Timbre

Timbre is the character or quality of a musical sound. There are many different words we can use to describe the timbre of a sound: bright, dark, brassy, reedy, harsh, noisy, thin, buzzy, pure, raspy, shrill, mellow.

When we describe the timbre of a sound we do not describe how loud the sound is (dynamics) or how high or low the sound is (pitch).
