There are more available tonal color combinations in a wind ensemble than in symphony orchestra. While there are some variations between a violin and a cello, a string is a string, whereas, in a wind ensemble, you are blending instruments of completely different timbres — euphonium and clarinets, for example, or trumpet and oboe.

(… because an oboe is never combined with a trumpet in a symphony orchestra.)
