(Baritone and Euphonium Distinctions)
The baritone is a 1/2 or 3/4 size instrument.The Euphonium is a 4/4 size. The Baritone is more popular for  beginners, the euphonium is for the more advanced player.
The difference...
Baritones are considered to be cylindrical,  bore stays the same size until the bell flare. It is easier to maintain a tone for beginner players. Euphoniums are conical.  The bore becomes bigger throughout the instruments length. The tone is a bit darker than  baritone, and is more difficult to produce a full tone.
