Question: In which of the gollowing we find difference in the sounds made by sitar and veena ?
(1) pitch
(2) quality
(3) Both (1) and (2)
(4) None of these

Answer: (2) Quality
Quality is that characteristic of a musical sound which enables us to distinguish between the sounds
produced by two different musical instruments or two different persons although their pitch and loudness
may be same. It is because of this characteristic that we are able to recognize the voice of a known person
over the telephone or to distinguish between the sounds produced by different musical instruments in an
orchestra. The quality depends primarily on the waveform of the sound.
