From Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary :

     (1 Sam. 10:5; 1 Kings 1:40; Isa. 5:12; 30:29). The Hebrew word
     halil, so rendered, means "bored through," and is the name given
     to various kinds of wind instruments, as the fife, flute,
     Pan-pipes, etc. In Amos 6:5 this word is rendered "instrument of
     music." This instrument is mentioned also in the New Testament
     (Matt. 11:17; 1 Cor. 14:7). It is still used in Palestine, and
     is, as in ancient times, made of different materials, as reed,
     copper, bronze, etc.
