Then for those with less equipment thunder is still worth recording.
A certain amount of distortion is allowable in thunder recordings.

You can decide for yourself if the linked file is usable.  I have and
it worked well. Because of the unexpected bounce the distortion is not

Recorded with a cheap old atrac minidisc in stereo without edit.
