Are musical instruments forbidden in the NT?

Are musical instruments forbidden in the NT Church as the Church of Christ claims?

Colossians 3:16

King James Version (KJV)

16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.

Clearly they are not forbidden as Paul tells/commands us to sing Psalms, and many of the Psalms require/command instruments to be used.

Some extra scripture.

Is any among you afflicted? let him pray. Is any merry? let him sing psalms – James 5:13.
