meaning of brummfidel

Any idea what Brummfidel means in English, as in the phrase "Brummfidel, Pestilenz und Weltuntergang." I've checked about 20 online dictionaries. No luck.

Thanks

Hi Ian
Never heard of the term, but did find it here, and wondering if related to quietschfidel?

Is that any help?!
