Re: how do you pronounce "meinl"?
My thinking is, if it is German then the second vowel is accented when i and e are together, so I always say Mine-L. Lets have a look at what Wikipedia says. Be right back.
Well uncommon to Wki they had no pronunciation listed so I shall defer to Karl or one of our other European members.
