  Cymbals 
  (Heb.  tzeltzelim  from  a  root  meaning  to  "tinkle"),  musical 
  instruments,  consisting  of  two  convex  pieces  of  brass  one  held 
  in  each  hand,  which  were  clashed  together  to  produce  a  loud 
  clanging  sound;  castanets;  "loud  cymbals."  "Highsounding 
  cymbals"  consisted  of  two  larger  plates,  one  held  also  in  each 
  hand  (2  Sam.  6:5;  Ps  150:5;  1  Chr.  13:8;  15:16,  19,  28;  1  Cor. 
  13:1).
