The restoration of antique instruments deontologies and techiques

The restoration of an antique instrument whether historic and/or belonging to the patrimony is a complex and difficult issue requiring various techniques and knowledge. First of all, we need to distinguish between the different families of musical instruments, each with its own specificity, materials; therefore requiring particular restoration techniques. According to the Sachs/Hornbostel classification still in use in the museums, the main families of instruments are :

-Idiophones, which sound is produced by the material composing the object when it vibrates : for
example bells, Jew’s harp
- membraphones, which sound is produced by the vibration of a membrane, for example drums
- cordophones, which sound is produced by strings in tension between two points, for example
violins, guitars
Aerophones, which sound is produced by vibrations transmitted by air, for example flutes, trumpets
