An altogether (pronounced alto-gether) is a high-pitched version of a gether, an ancient musical instrument of no fixed sound. Rounding out the family of gether instruments are the supranogether, which plays in a higher register than the altogether; the tenorgether, which has a lower sound than the altogether; the baritonegether, which is even lower; and the bassgether, which plays in the lowest key of the gethers.

Gethers are wind instruments. It requires considerable lung capacity to play them well and, hence, they are usually played only by windbags or blowhards.
