صنبر صنج صند
صَنْجٌ [A cymbal;] a thing made of brass, [having its fellow of the same kind,] one of which was struck with the other; (Ṣ, Mgh, Mṣb, Ḳ;) of a round form: (Mgh, Mṣb:) such was the instrument of this name known to the Arabs: (Ṣ, Mgh:) its use was disapproved: (Mgh:) pl. صُنُوجٌ: which was also applied by the Arabs to the small round things inserted in the hoop of the tambourine (Mgh, L,* Mṣb) and the like, (L,) of brass, or copper: (Mṣb:) an arabicized word (Ṣ, Mgh, Mṣb) [app. from the Pers. سَنْج or سِنْج].
Also A certain stringed instrument [of music]; (Ṣ, Mgh, Mṣb, Ḳ;) [app. the kind of harp called by the Persians َۜنْغ, and by the modern Arabs جُنْك, figured in Note 26 to Ch. iii. of my Translation of the Thousand and One Nights;] an instrument peculiar to the 'Ajam; (Ṣ, Mgh, Mṣb;) but the Arabs sometimes applied the name of صِنْج to this latter instrument: (L:) also an arabicized word when thus applied. (Ṣ, Mgh, Mṣb, Ḳ.)
صَنْجُ الجِنِّ signifies صَوْتُهَا [app. meaning The clamour of the Jinn, or Genii; or their raising of their voices in singing]: a phrase used [in this sense] in a verse of El-Kutámee. (TA.)
صَنْجَةُ المِيزَانِ: see سَنْجَة: its pl. is صَنَجَاتٌ (Mgh) [and app. also صِنَجٌ, like سِنَجٌ].
صَنَّاجٌ A player with [or upon] the صَنْج, meaning [the cymbal, and also] the stringed instrument so called: and in like manner صَنَّاجَةٌ↓: (L:) but this latter has an intensive signification [meaning an excellent player with, or upon, the صنج]: (Ḥar p. 617:) and signifies also a woman having [or playing with] a صَنْج, as in a verse cited voce جَذَا in art. جذو [where it evidently means a female player with cymbals]. (L.)
صَنَّاجَةٌ: see the next preceding paragraph.
صَنَّاجَةُ الجَيْشِ means † The singer of the army:
and also † The well-known بَطَل [or man of courage or valour] (Ḥar p. 617.)
Aạshà- Benee-Keys, (L, Ḳ,) also called Aạshà-Bekr, (L,) used to be called صَنَّاجَةُ العَرَبِ because of the excellence of his poetry, (L, Ḳ,) or because his poetry was much sung. (Ḥar ubi suprà.)
