Tarsacci Metal Detector

Recommended Posts

Detected a  stretch of  a river that had  some erosion on the banks and sand removed down to the gravels.  I dug up many coins including a buffalo nickel and a silver dime that someone was going to make into  a ring. The best find was a 14k ladies ring 3.1g  (not a genuine stone).   Also dug up what looked like a white gold  ring turned out to be stainless steel.     

The tarsacci has good recovery speed like the T2 worked great in  the trashy area  with  broken pieces of  rusted old steel cans, bottles caps, bits and pieces of iron along with all the newer junk tossed into the river.   The tarsacci worked better than my T2 it found targets in a area I couldn’t use the T2. 

The 2 wheat pennies were dug up  at a old park 6-7 inches deep.   The tarsacci  goes deeper it’s just that  my ctx did a good job sniffing out most of the oldies at this old park.

Thanks for the post, the Tarsacci sort of disappeared from the radar quickly so it's good to hear a report on how it's going.  To say it worked in trash better than a T2 is pretty impressive.

They need to do a better job of marketing only 2 sellers selling the tarsacci.     Nasa-Tom of Dankowskidetectors.com  and  Greg of Trans Bay Metal Detectors.     Also someone needs to answer questions on their website.     I guess they are expecting users of the tarsacci to spread the word by posting finds but I don’t see  many.

Hi Denny,

I would have like to seen the trash pile so I could judge the trash to treasure ratio.  What do you think it was?

Isn't it about a $2000 unit? I wonder if the Equinox isn't a cheaper and more tested alternative?   Or is it a PI?

I found the gold ring  pretty quick after cherry picking through the rusty cans, rusty bottle caps and digging up only 4-5 pulltabs in the first 10 minutes.    Probably dug up around 100 newer bottle caps,  pulltabs,  aluminum foil.

$1539 is what I paid.   Equinox is very good detector but I already have a ctx 3030.

I tested it with my diamond tester 3 times and each time it was negative.

      I got several major laughs looking at a "New" metal detector listing on Ebay. The listing is at MD-88 Deep Ground Metal Detector Gold Detector Pressure Stone Diamond Detector. It was incredible. I love the Minelab knock-off manual and coils.
      It uses 8 AAs and weighs 3.5 kg ?????? over 7 lbs. Must be really confusing to assemble. Is that coil on backwards........🤔

      It looks like the F19 - what I evaluate very positively ... Is there any closer information? Link to the leak.

      Just curious if anyone has had an experience using a Fisher Gemini 3 or similar detector in prospecting trying to find an ore vein.

      I'm attaching the manual (downloaded from Fisher's site). (Edit:  see Steve's link in his response below.)  On page 9, bullet point 4. it says:  Still holding the GEMINI-3 parallel to the ground, slowly turn the balance knob (with arrow) on the three-piece handle counterclockwise until you get silence (null) and zero meter reading.
      My question is this:  is the knob actually doing an electronic adjustment (such as being attached to a variable resistor or capacitor) or is it just re-aligning / repositioning the transmitter/receiver/attachment rod to optimal location?

      Getting ready to buy another Omega 8500.   I love the feature set on this detector.   
      I field tested prototypes of it and got a 1st production run model for compensation of my time, which I sold last year to fund some other detector purchases.   Looking at the market there really isn't anything to compete with its feature set when you need something more than simple phase shift target id in its price range....when you get the chance take look at the operating manual. 
      I especially like the Multiple Target Category System: 
      This feature is available only in Discrimination Mode. For each target, the Omega 8500 calculates four independent numerical Target-ID’s on each pass of the coil; one primary and three secondary. Each one of the Target-ID’s will correlate to a target category on the LCD. There will be one solid primary category lighting up and up to three additional secondary target categories. All are different readings of the same target, with the primary category being the one with most reliable signal. If the Target-ID’s vary, they will show up as multiple illuminated categories, and this could indicate the detector is picking up noise, a faint/weak signal or that the target is irregularly shaped.
      It has its warts but I have found some good gold jewelry with it, attaching a little 18K eye candy...
      Now just to figure out where to buy it from.

      I found this site while doing a search for detection depth in dry sand any way it is a good read but they have some really Wild looking detectors with some crazy frequencies listed in the chart link also check out there machines under the heading at the top left,
      I would like to hear what you Guys think of the first link.
      Enjoy,, John.
      Please note that in this first link there is a link to the Boot of Cortez which is worth a read.
