A Sextet is a formation containing exactly six members. It is commonly associated with musical groups, but can be applied to any situation where six similar or related objects are considered a single unit.

In jazz music a sextet is any group of six players, usually containing a drum set (pedal bass, snaredrum sometimes brushed, top hat cymbal, brushed cymbal), string bass or electric bass, and groups of one or two of the following instruments, guitar, trumpet, saxophone, clarinet, or trombone.

Six humans sharing the same gestational period are called sextuplets and are usually all born within a short period of time.

Sextet is also the name of a free improvisation quartet from Northern California. The group is comprised of Robert Schaulis (Clarinet), Austin Moore (Trumpet), Courtland Miles (Trumpet), and Nick Spangler (drums). Sextet is known for their percusive form of free jazz [Sextet Band].
