That doesn't work. It should have the word Frugel in it and it is Scott's design... i'm just the drawer guy...

Looks like a "Chief" to me, and the next might be a "Big Chief"

Thanks for the explanations guys.

It is a dual version of the frugel horn so why not simply call it the Dugel Horn?

If you don't like that then maybe Gregoose Frugelugos Horn floats your boat.

When I said Dugel Horn I meant it to be a combination of the word "Dual" and "Frugel".

C'mon Dave, you're the PR person at the very least! Give yourself a little credit

Frugel-DuoHorn? or Duo-Frugel Horn

Frugel-BiHorn? or Bi-Frugel Horn
