Ross Holmes


"When Winston Marshall of Mumford and Sons presented me a Mya-Moe baritone uke for Christmas, I was floored. I had never played a bari with so much depth and with such even tone from low to high - I have it tuned like an octave mandolin and am excited to use this tuning for recording and live purposes. The myrtle wood is spectacular, the feel is impeccable, and I truly think this instrument is nothing less than a combination of love and art. Gordon and Char - your instruments are fantastic and I'm honored to be playing one now!"
