    I don't think you understand what timbre means.

    Timbre isn't something that’s “used”.

  • So "timbre" refers to the specific richness, character or quality of a particular sound. For example a drum, and a clarinet can play the same notes, at the same pitch, at the same volume, but still sound worlds apart. This is because of their timbre. Saying anything has more timbre than anything else is like saying a blue square has more color than a red square; they both have color, it's just the character of that color is different, and thus one cannot have more than the other. In the same way, when two sounds are compared, they both have a specific timbre. It is not a comparison of quantity, but of quality.
