Criteria for the design of an acoustic pulse reflectometer specifically intended for musical instrument research are discussed. Different types of pulse source are considered, and various approaches to the signal processing of the reflected pulse are evaluated. Finally, the practical utility of the technique for instrument designers and manufacturers is discussed.
