Flute

(1 Kings 1:40) (marg., PIPE), A musical instrument mentioned amongst others, (Daniel 3:5,7,10,15) as used at the worship of the golden image which Nebuchadnezzar had set up. It bore a close resemblance to the modern flute, and was made of reeds, of copper, and other material. It was the principal wind-instrument.

ATS Bible Dictionary
Flute

A soft, sweet-toned wind instrument of music. The word flute is used only in Daniel 3:5,7,10,15, and is supposed to mean a pipe with two reeds, such as are still to be found in the East. It is blown at the end. See MUSIC, PIPE.

Easton's Bible Dictionary
A musical instrument, probably composed of a number of pipes, mentioned Dan. 3:5, 7, 10, 15.

In Matthew 9:23, 24, notice is taken of players on the flute, here called "minstrels" (but in R.V. "flute-players").

Flutes were in common use among the ancient Egyptians.
