" Hi Cary, I’ve had a chance to play my new instrument for a couple of weeks now and just wanted to let you know how incredibly pleased with it I am. My old baritone is a decent instrument but everything about my Mya-Moe is superior. The tone is beautiful, the workmanship is excellent, and the volume and sustain and just amazing. For instance, I never understood what the big deal was with the 12th fret harmonic technique because on my old baritone you could barely hear anything when you did this but on the Mya-Moe it sounds like chimes.
