baritone clef



[Eng.]


  1. A old version of the F clef that locates f (below middle C) on the third line.

    See also [Eng.] baritone clef; [Fr.] clé de fa troisième ligne (f); [Fr.] clef de fa troisième ligne (f); [Fr.] clé de fa 3e (f); [Fr.] clef de fa 3e (f); [Ger.] Baritonschlüssel (m); [It.] chiave di baritono (f). [Sp.] clave de fa en tercera (f). [Sp.] clave de barítono (f).

  2. There is also a rarely used baritone clef in the C clef. This clef puts middle C on the top line of the staff. This creates the same placement of notes as the baritone clef in the F clef. So both baritone clefs are essentially the same notation using different clefs.
