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
Philip3830 17.05.2021
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.

Nice Pedal, Nice Tones
Bopper1987 19.04.2023
Bought this as I didnt own a flanger for some reason just plugins and software versions and its a really affordable and durable unit. It has all the features and controls you need to get those types of tones, I was mainly looking for something to play The Police/Andy Summers stuff and didnt want to shell out €148 for the EHX Electric Mistress and this pedal gets me close enough to the tones Im looking for and it cost €50.

I was expecting it to feel cheaper considering its only €50 but it has a solid metal enclosure and nice feeling control knobs which stay in position and a footswitch that doesnt feel like its going to die after 10 presses. So if your in the market for a Flanger and dont want to stump up the money for a Boss BF-3 or Electric Mistress than I would thoroughly recommend this unit for your pedal board.

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.
