Word:

Trumpet marine

(Mus.) a monochord, having a thick string, sounded with a bow, and stopped with the thumb so as to produce the harmonic tones; - said to be the oldest bowed instrument known, and in form the archetype of all others. It probably owes its name to "its external resemblance to the large speaking trumpet used on board Italian vessels, which is of the same length and tapering shape."
