This chapter introduces the reader to the tools which are necessary for the implementation of the instrument. In detail, it describes an hardware measurement system including the acoustic hammer and other devices used to excite the finished instrument or part of it. The Chladni method is also outlined as complementary to the acoustic hammer method. Photographs and dimensions of the tools are given in order to allow duplicating them. A software system—custom developed—allows gathering a number of data from the measurements, like spectrograms, third of octave graphs, waterfall, decay plots. Resonances and antiresonances are displayed in two ranges (respectively up to 1000 Hz and 10,000 Hz) with a resolution of about 0.6 Hz.
