Sackbut,

Sackbut, [N] [E]

( Daniel 3:5 Daniel 3:7 Daniel 3:10 Daniel 3:15 ) the rendering in the Authorized Version of the Chaldee sacbbeca . If this music instrument be the same as the Greek and Latin sabbeca , the English translation is entirely wrong. The sackbut was a wind instrument [see MUSIC]; the sambuca was a triangular instrument, with strings, and played with the hand.
