For many years the world of handcrafted musical instruments has been confronted with the problem of the certain identification and authenticity of musical instruments, with particular reference to those of recent construction.

MIR - Musical Instrument Register was therefore born from the idea of ​​creating a present and future protection system, with essential information to identify a certain contemporary artisan musical instrument in a certain and indisputable way, through information coming from the manufacturers themselves, which they can enter directly into the portal. their instruments, through good definition images accompanied by historical and technical information. In fact, only the authors of the instruments themselves will guarantee their authorship, origin and construction characteristics.

In this way the musical instruments inserted on the MIR portal will be verified through:

  • the usual certificates produced by the authors;
  • a unique code and a QR-code provided by the portal that will connect directly to the page of the instrument inserted by the manufacturer on the site;
  • as a further protection service, MIR is pleased to offer a technology that will allow you to independently verify the authenticity and history of any musical instrument registered on the portal, through an anti-counterfeiting TAG, which can be inserted into the instrument and read via a smartphone or tablet, which will connect to the page of the instrument itself, without downloading any application.
