People's Dictionary of the Bible
Sackbut. A musical instrument. The word thus (probably erroneously) translated, sabbeca, occurs only in Daniel. Daniel 3:5; Daniel 3:7; Daniel 3:10; Daniel 3:15. It seems really to have been a triangular instrument with four or more strings, played on with the fingers, and emitting a sharp, clear sound.
