Is this narration authentic?
عن ابن عباس قال: الدف حرام والمعازف حرام والكوبة حرام والمزمار حرام
Imam Bayhaqi (rahimahullah) has recorded this narration.
(As Sunanul Kubra, vol. 10 pg. 222. Also see: Al Matalibul ‘Aliyah, Hadith: 2193)
‘Allamah Dhahabi (rahimahullah) has declared a narrator unknown (majhul). This narration will therefore be deemed weak.
(Al Muhaddhab of ‘Allamah Dhahabi, Hadith: 16210)
Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Abbas (radiyallahu ‘anhuma) said: “Tambourines, musical instruments, drums and musical instruments/flutes are impermissible.”

Kindly refer to a Mufti/Darul Ifta for a Fatwa (Juristic ruling) on this issue.
And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
