Just Scored A New Vaquero

Recommended Posts

 Winning bid of $200! That's got to be a deal! I paid like $448 the first time I had one.

I had a Vaquero with a Cleansweep coil at one point. Nice little detector, and I even found some gold nuggets with it. Good luck with yours!

I will honestly say I had a Vaquero for over a year and could actually hear and know pencils eraser ends before digging.  I've always thought Tesoro's had one of the best if not the very best audio in the detector industry.

Don't know if it's a high tone or low and I kind of hope it's a high tone but can't complain because of price.

And don't forget about the "lifetime" warranty, LOL!

It doesn't have an adjustable vco audio so my guess is it is like the default variable audio that is on the Tejon. If so you will probably have an easier time identifying objects as the sound varies more than just a flat pitch and not need to listen for subtle rolls or pops. I have both the 10x12 widescan and the 8x9 stock concentric. Though the concentric is shy in depth by 3" or so and doesn't cover nearly as much ground I find it a killer in high trash areas, far better than any dd I have used since it has a small scan area and your not swiping over other trash from tip and tail. If yours has a dd, try to snag the concentric.

It has the 8x9 which I've had before. I'm thinking of getting a 7" Mars Lion coil for it. I got one for my Fisher F22 and it air tested dimes and pennies at 10" which is pretty good for a small coil. I hunt a lot of tot lots and I can get around the equipment better with a smaller coil.

      Hi All,
       
      I am looking to get a Tesoro very soon as I had one years ago (Laser Scout - UK version)  but I'm torn between a Tesoro Cibola and Vanquero.
      Also are these machines good on dry beaches also how about wet sand?  Is the C better than the V and if anyone can help?
      I'm hoping some members here may have some information as to help me on this subject.

      I read a tip on super tuning the Tesoro Tejon and didn't see any difference in depth at all. In the tip they said to do an regular gb with sensitivity @ 10, then turn the GB + 1/4 turn (approx. 8.33 on a vdi with scale of 100), then turn the sensitivity back just until the machine stabilizes. Did some quick depth tests and found id made no difference at all.
      I tried similar technique on my AT Pro and had a loss in depth of approx. 1".
      Am I missing something here? Is super tuning some sort of myth?

      Got a used Tesoro LOBO, but with or without coil, it just screams when I turn it on. Adjusting threshold no help. Any ideas, or anyone need it for parts?
      Thanks,
      Jeff in AZ

      I found this site that has posted all of the Tesoro Brochures for each model. Great walk down memory lane for those who love their Tesoros.

      I know it needs to be in the classifieds and maybe thats where i will put it, but thought id ask what a gently used tesoro vaquero in perfect working order would sell for?
