The guitar make? Since English is not my first language so yeah thanks.

I pronounce it as Sketch-er is it right or not thank you.

I know it sounds a nit silly, It's just that I don't wanna go to a music shop saying 'Oh yeah I want to try the Schecter C-1 FR.' and the shop owner goes lolololololol.


Thanks.

i've always pronounced it "shek-ter".. but the sch might be "sk" as in school as well (although that doesn't sound right to me)...

anyway, i've only really heard people say it "shek-ter" until now so that's the way i say it.
I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

...A little too proud, to be honest.

how do you pronounce gretsch?
In a soundcheck there's never too much guitar. Just not enough of all the other instruments.

the brand's name seems to have a german root, or some. and in german sch is pronounced like sh in english. also ingerman ch alone (without the s) is pronounced like the J in spanish and Enlhish talkin' people can't pronounce it since they don't have that "sound" in their language.


so shekter, and it would be better that the brand changes it's name to shekter, just to make things simple...

Shek-ter. Seems like the only logicable way to say it, to me.

I've never played it, but I once saw a trailer, and the narrator-man said "BAH-ten KIE-tos," with "tos" sounding like "toast" without the second t. Makes sense to me.

Go to YouTube, type in Schecter and find a video of a company official using the name, chances are they'll have it right. This works for almost all pronunciation issues.
