Martyn How 1949-2024

Rotosound are saddened to announce that James How’s eldest son, Martyn, has passed away at his home on the first of January 2024.

From an early age, Martyn How, was involved in the company, winding strings on his father’s machines as a teenager before managing departments and sitting on the board of directors. Martyn’s warm and friendly nature flourished at trade fairs and public shows, where he could be found having long chats with players and dealers. His easygoing manner also helped form friendships with many of Rotosound’s most notable artists.

When James How died in 1994, the running of Rotosound passed down to Martyn and James’s youngest son, Jason. In more recent years, Martyn stepped back from the business to spend more time with his family.

Music Instrument News wishes to pass on our sincerest condolences to those who knew Martyn and everyone at Rotosound.
