(quote) Jerry-74383 said: Along with the tambourines, bongo drums, etc.
In defense of the tambourines (though I can certainly do without them) we have Psalm 150:4, which in some translations at least is rendered as "Praise him with tambourine and dance; praise him with strings and pipe!" (ESV). Other translations say 'timbrel' which is much the same thing. That said, the variety of musical instruments available in King David's time was probably pretty limited. The Douay Rheims has
"Praise him with timbrel and choir: praise him with strings and organs". I would have thought that "organs" was a mistranslation, as the earliest ancestor of the organ, the hydraulis, was invented by one Ctesibius of Alexandria
in the third century BC.
