How Do You Pronounce Takamine?

Like the word Porsche, it appears that I've been pronouncing it all wrong.

Takamine is pronounced:

tah -- kah -- MEE -- neh

The word means "high ridge" (as in "mountain ridge") and is taken from the name of a mountain (Mt. Takamine) located in the Gifu Prefecture where the company is located.
