What does Psalm 150:4 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Psalms 150:4

Praise him with the timbrel and dance
Or "pipe" F21; (See Gill on Psalms 149:3);

praise him with stringed instruments;
or divers "kinds" F23 of instruments not named, as R. Saadiah Gaon; and which, as Aben Ezra says, had all one sound or note; what they were is not known, as also many of them that are particularly mentioned;

and organs;
which have their name from the loveliness of their sound; these are of ancient original and use, ( Genesis 4:21 ) ( Job 21:12 ) ( 30:31 ) ; but were not of the same kind with those now in use, which are of much later invention.
