I only got half. Back in the 10+ years ago I was in high school, I played regular orchestra band, our high school didn't even have a marching band. But we had a jazz band... :P

I have never heard the term "Metallophone" before. I am guessing that this is the same as a Vibraphone? It is almost the size of a marimba, but with metal keys. It also has a dampening pedal for silencing the keys as they do sustain for quite a while. Some even have paddles on the pipes for a vibrato effect.

I don't know what the obsession is with the word "Glockenpiel" in these quizzes, but they are more commonly referred to as the "bells". Maybe these alternate names are common in the UK or something.

I keep forgetting I actually have this quiz here. It's in dire need of some fixes.

Made some major changes- marked uncommon instruments, fixed spellings, and got rid of pit percussion since there isn't really a set list of instruments used there and you can't use them in a parade setting.

No, they're two different instruments. Baritone has a smaller bore than euphonium.
