what do you mean by the quality of sound

Expert Answer:

Quality of a sound is that characteristic which distinguishes the two sounds of the same loudness and same pitch but emitted by two different instruments.

Even if the sounds of two objects have the same frequency and similar wavelength, they are different.

Example:

The sound produced by a guitar and a sitar. Both have the same frequency (i.e. pitch) and loudness (i.e. amplitude), but still one can easily distinguish between the two sounds without looking at the instruments.
