It's named after the Flange of a tape reel, if that helps


That one.

Someone played with the reel to reel tape by touching the flange ("flanch") of the reel causing it to slow down thus creating an effect.

They named it the flanger then.

It was the assistant engineer on the Beatles Revolver album, Ken Townshend (i think?), he was playing John Lennon's vocals for Tomorrow Never Knows on 2 different reels at once, and on 1 tape machine he was doing that. John Lennon was referring to the effect as "ken's flanger" throughout the rest of the sessions. John said he wanted his voice to sound like "the dalai llama <i don't know how to spell it lol, so llama llama duck!> chanting from the top of a big mountain, with his words being carried in the wind" or something (totally tripping on LSD), and they got that "artificial double tracking" sound, but then discovered the leslie speaker, so the leslie speaker was used instead.

ger - as in danger


However, a lot of people seem to be pronouncing the flan bit differently....

In all seriousness, I agree with your way of saying flanger, and I also find the "flame" pronunciation weird.

yeah, that's the way to pronounce it. i mean, that dictionary i linked to had an american dude saying it (the same way we say it), so it's not like it's pronounced differently across the pond.

Conclusion: a lot of people are mispronouncing it.
