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.

I am a big flanger fan. I have a flanger in my guitar pedalboard that I love and when time was scarce and not enough to connect my pedalboard, so I had to plug directly into the amp, I missed having a dedicated flanger.

I found this before Christmas and, after liking what I heard online, I ordered one and liked it very much.
It's a cheap heavy pedal, but resistant and durable, it offers a good variety of sonic possibilities and it sounds good. It wouldn't replace my 8 ear old Neo Mistress but is a good substitute when I can't use it.

I mainly play Metal with lots of clean passages and I use flanger in most of those cleans, inspired mostly by Machine Head. I like to put it before the amp/distortion to smooth the effect and give a liquid vibe to some passages and, sometimes, to generate some chaos in long double note bends, sustaining notes or generating oscillating feedback, also like Machine Head.

It is not a perfect pedal, but to start using flanger or have a solid back up is a great value for the price!

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.
