Thread Name: What are jubal hounds?
Subject: RE: What are jubal hounds?
I looked at this as the use of a Biblical term, not a musical term. Google Jubal hounds Bible and you find some interesting stuff. I'm working on this, but here is a short snippit:

Yôbâl (Jubal) and Tôbalkin (Tubal-Cain), the two brethren, the sons of Lamech, the blind man, who killed Cain, invented and made all kinds of instruments of music.
Jôbâl made reed instruments, and harps, and flutes, and whistles,
and the devils went and dwelt inside them.
When men blew into the pipes, the devils sang inside them,
and sent out sounds from inside them.
