The instrument played by Manuel (Spencer Tracy) while singing is a hurdy gurdy. It is a strange amalgam of a keyed instrument and a stringed instrument that originated in France in the middle ages and is thought to have evolved from the fiddle. Instead of using a bow, a crank turns a wooden wheel that comes in contact with the strings to make the sound.
