I know this is old but at least it answers the age-old question of how do you pronounce Joyo and some other brands.



Btw, it seems it's "Jo-Yo" not Joy-O as I've heard it often.
And another major news, it's "Hot Tone" not "Ho Tone" or even "Hot One" for Hotone pedals. Still, I don't understand where the second "t" sound is found for that preferred pronunciation.

However, the folks at piezo pickup didn't answer whether it's pronounced "pee-A-zo" or "pie-zo." Holding up small slices of the delicacy, the guys said, "pizza." Thanks a lot, guys.

Caline - 1) Kay-Leen or 2) Kay-Line ?

Sonicake - 1) Sonic Ake or 2) Sonic Cake ?

D'Addario - 1) Duh Dario or 2) Dee Adario ?

Shijie is not Shee-Jee, it's Shee-Jyeah ... like Hell Yeah with a J. :)

D, Addario is mentioned at about the 1:20 mark. But it sounded like me as if the guy eliminated the first "A" so it sounded like Dee Dario. At least to me. So maybe the "A" is silent?

It's a contraction, "da-DARE-e-oh." I pronounce it "da-DAH-ree-oh," and sometimes "dad-ah-ree-o."
