    I’m sorry…I just cannot trust any reviewer of D’Addario products who doesn’t even know how to pronounce the name of the manufacturer correctly.

    It is NOT pronounced: “DEE-uh-da-ree-oh.”

    It is: “Duh-da-ree-oh.”

    To my way of thinking, a reviewer/critic has an obligation to get the facts right. And, yes, that includes getting the pronunciation right.

    I hear ya...but would you say "lee-mon"...or "o-raynge"? No.
    Sorry, this goes to getting the name right.
    It's "Bud-wyz-er," not "Bud-weeez-er."

    And, yes, they are great strings.

    The larger point here is that reviewers/critics need to get it right...or their review/critique is immediately faulted.

    I used to used D’Addario. Did it until they stopped putting strings in individual envelopes. They last the longest on a Floyd Rose that you are pulling up on, but the packaging gets me. I am somewhat colorblind, so I’ve put the wrong string in the wrong spot before. The EB’s seem to last a good while on a Floyd though. I change my strings often enough that I’ve got new strings on the guitar before the old ones break.

    Jeez...I was hoping this wouldn't get to be a "my strings can beat up your strings" thread!

    No...I was hoping that folks here would agree that getting the name right is important if you're going to do a review/critique of a product.

    Yeah... But what about non-native speakers? Do you dismiss their reviews just because they may sound a little 'funny'?

    The way I see it, If the mispronunciation of someone's (or their company's) name is the worst I have to deal with in a day then I have had a pretty darn good day.

    @3bolt79 I will argue that my GHS Boomers are still the best I have found for heavy trem use no matter what bridge I have them on.:D I beat the H, E, Double Hockey Sticks out of them too.
