Default Re: Question About Musical Term (Or Lack Thereof?)

Timbre is how we can differentiate between a saxophone and a trumpet even if they are playing the same musical note...

...the D is the same D on a sax or trumpet, the fundamental tone is what we tune for (the lowest pitch in a set of tones) and the rest of the sound is the set of overtones, and the waveform shape.
Check out some of my drumming on my youtube channel:
