Noun[edit]

timbrel (plural timbrels)

  1. An ancient percussion instrument rather like a simple tambourine.
    • 1907, Robert W. Chambers, The Younger Set, Ch.II:
      "I ought to arise and go forth with timbrels and with dances; but, do you know, I am not inclined to revels? There has been a little—just a very little bit too much festivity so far …. Not that I don't adore dinners and gossip and dances; not that I do not love to pervade bright and glittering places. []"
