Xylophone made from wood horns and “kalbasse”

The term xylophone may be used generally, to include all such instruments, such as the marimba, balafon and even the semantron. However, in the orchestra, the term xylophone refers specifically to a chromatic instrument of somewhat higher pitch range and driertimbre than the marimba, and these two instruments should not be confused.
