Hi Jerryo,

i live in india as well, and am in the middle of a heavy (and extended) monsoon. the next time there is a storm brewing i can record some samples and somehow send them to you. i don't have much by way of recording gear but will see what i can get my hands on. we do get some spectacular thunder here but then its tough to imagine un-spectacular thunder!

The Sound Check 2 cd that was produced by Allan Parsons at Abbey Road has an uncompressed thunder recording that are pretty impressive, and also lots of other useful tracks.

I bought mine from RS Components, but I believe they stopped selling it. Try Canford they ship to other countries.

Hello mymindinside,
that is a very generous offer that you make. It would be brilliant to hear the thunder during your monsoon season. Do let me know if you can do a good recording; I wonder what sort of microphone set up would be best to record thunder in stereo?
I hope you are managing to stay dry and safe.
What is it with thunder that impresses us so much?

Back in the 70s, Brad Miller released an LP called "The Power And The Majesty" through MFSL. It had a thunderstorm in the Rockies on one side and some steam trains on the other side. Check out MFSL on Wikipedia, and the MFSL history at their site:

I purchased a number of CDs of storms but don't know whereabouts as my drives crashed and there's thousands of cds in tubs - the rain sounds alone are interesting as played on various speakers - my Karlson with internal slotted tube was the most "wet" sounding with one speaker. freesound has a number of recordings - some may be good
