How do you pronounce Behringer?

I have used Behringer mixers since the late 90s. One of the first mixers I bought from them came with a sample CD. On that CD, Uli Behringer recorded a little intro where he introduced himself AND pronounced the company name using the hard ‘g’ sound, not the ‘j’ sound that most people use. Ironically, I was just on their own website and a guy introduced Uli as Uli BehrinJUR, LOL! I guess he gave up years ago trying to correct folks (the CD was made in 1999). As proof, here is the intro speech by Uli Behringer:

And here is the video I found on their website with the “jur” pronunciation:

So I guess it depends on who you ask. I’d give more credence to the pronunciation by dude for which the company was named.


Which guitar is calling me?

2012 Martin DC Aura Custom2011 Fender American Deluxe Stratocaster2000 Gibson Gary Moore signature Les Paul

I haven’t touched a guitar in a week. Seems longer than that, but I know I just recorded a song a week ago (look for “Year’s End” on my RN profile, if you want to hear it). So I’m feeling the urge to play some more. I’ve been on a Strat kick, lately. And I don’t think I’ve touched my Les Paul in months. But it is my Martin acoustic that is calling me back. The Les Paul can wait. I need to re-string it, anyway. But for now, it is time for some acoustic strumming. Maybe I’ll record a new song. Maybe not. I can’t predict when creativity will strike. All I can do is keep a digital recorder handy for when it does.
