On July 10, 1998 Bolivia issued a set of 3 stamps honoring notable native sons. One of these stamps pictures Dr. Adrian Patino, composer of Presidential March, and the score of the music.

These two stamps from the United Arab Emirates' 1992 "Traditional Instruments" set of 6 (Sc #s 402A-F), depict contemporary Arab musicians with their instruments. The 50 fils stamps (Sc # 402B) show a seated figure playing the lute-like oud, while the 1 dinar stamp shows a pair of musicians. One man is using a tabel (hand drum), while the other is blowing on a hibban. The hibban appears to be a kind of bagpipe similar to the Tunisian mizwad.

From the arabinstruments.com website, "Oud is considered to be 'the king of instruments'. It is assumed that the name al-oud is derived from the Arabic 'the wood' and came to Europe (as the lute) through North Africa."

These stamps are the same size.

On August 2, 2018 Ireland released 8 designs from its ninth definitive series "A History of Ireland in 100 Objects" as computer-vended stamps. One of these designs is the "Loughnashade Trumpet", a Bronze Age (ca. 100 B.C.) relic in the National Museum of Ireland in Dublin.

From claddaghdesign.com website. "The decoration of the terminal disc is by far the most eye-catching aspect of the Loughnashade Horn. Hammered in high relief and mirrored in each quadrant of the ring, it features long, curving tendrils ending in spiral motifs based on the classical lotus-bud design in a perfect representation of the impressive skill of Bronze Age craftsmen."

Here are images of the four stamps in a set depicting traditional musical instruments of the Sotho (aka Basotho) people, respectively: Mamokhorong (single-string violin); Lesiba (unbraced mouth-resonated bow); Setolotolo (musical bow); and Meropa (drums), printed by lithography, and issued by Lesotho on January 5, 1975, Scott Nos. 174-177. Note: The portrait incorporated into the design on each of these stamps is of Moshoeshoe II (1938-1996), King of Lesotho.
