Goof flanger for synths
Miro S 04.09.2021
This review is written by a synth user for synth users.

I bought Thunderstorm for my two synths: Odyssey and Model D. It works well for both. Sound-wise there's nothing to complain. It does its job of being a flanger pedal.
From a synth user (sound designer) perspective, this pedal is not very versatile. It's not bad as many other flanger pedals are even more limited. I would say that it allows for different sonic palettes but for real experimental users it may lack more extreme settings.

To summarize, it's a good flanger pedal for synths if you just need a flanger and you don't want to go into any extremes. Leads, pads, basses - it will do. Crazy, strange, aggressive sounds - look for something else.

Like the sound

I like this pedal a lot and the flanger sound it creates.
Pros - it's cheap, sounds really good and the construction is very solid - much nicer than Behringer pedals in the same price range. All connections including power are on the back of the pedal which means they can sit nicely side by side on the pedal board
Cons - the Smorgasbord range of pedals seem to be often one-trick ponies, I bought eight of them, and several are underwhelming whilst others like the Prophet, Thunderstorm, Honey Pot fuzz and Compressor are great. The main con for a lot of people is their size. They are big and a little heavy.

Great sounding and sturdy cheap flanger
Karl Tobin 22.07.2021
I was looking for a classic flanger sound and the Thunderstorm did not disappoint. You also get some nice subtle chorus-y sounds, as well as some wild stuff, and everything in between.

It’s built like a tank, the only critique I have is it could be a bit lighter, and maybe a little smaller (if you’re tight on space on your board - although top mounted jacks do help with this)

It fits in nicely on my board next to some other top mounted pedals I have, YMMV.

All in all, very good quality for the price! Big fan of this series from TC.

BBD jet power! On a budget!!!
Anonymous 14.01.2017
Wow! Unbelievable value for BBD analog swirly lushness. Great range of tones and very simple to use. The size of the device is the only draw back as my pedal board is already very full but at this price and when it sounds as it does this can be forgiven and space can be allocated. Product arrived on time and was well packed, staff at thomann were very helpful with concerns and the product tracking feature is brilliant! I would definatly recommend thomann to friends and family.
