Abstract Old historical string musical instruments in Western cultural tradition have been recognised as objects of universal cultural heritage since 1967. These instruments are those from the violin family, guitars, harps, harpsichords and pianos built since before the 14th century. These rare and unique musical instruments specifically addressed vital questions related their use, restoration and conservation. For the characterization of historical musical instruments one or several non-destructive tests could be selected depending on the purposes of the investigations, namely the characterization of their materials or the behaviour of the entire instrument.
