I would do something like this:

#+begin_src emacs-lisp
;; set default font for all frames
(when window-system
         ((font-info "Courier New")
          (modify-all-frames-parameters '((font . "Courier New-8"))))
         ((font-info "Ubuntu Mono")
          (modify-all-frames-parameters '((font . "Ubuntu Mono-9"))))))

Please check the accuracy of the font names...

Best regards,
