Goldmaster 24K 4x6 Coil Availability?

Recommended Posts

I really like the 6" concentric and would recommend it to most people as the small coil to have for the Goldmaster 24K and GMX. It is very sensitive to the smallest gold while retaining very good depth for a smaller coil.

It is however a measured 6.5" in diameter. The 4" x 6" DD coil can get into much tighter locations, like deep crevices and pockets in bedrock, or between rocks and brush on deeper ground. You can't find gold if you can't get the coil immediately over it.

The DD design is electronically less reactive to more mineralized ground than the identical size concentric coil, and the 4" x 6" coil is both a DD coil and small in size. It will therefore be able to retain higher sensitivity levels on highly mineralized ground than the concentric coil, be less reactive to hot rocks, and be less sensitive to electrical interference (EMI). However, in head to head tests in mild to moderate ground the 6.5" concentric will have more punch.

For slightly better ground coverage and best depth in most ground the 6.5" concentric should be the first choice. But for highly mineralized ground or those very tight physical locations the 4" x 6" DD is a tool worth having.

Found a dealer that had it listed as in stock so I ordered one.  What I recieved yesterday was something totally different, but after contacting the dealer I was told they were sorry for the mix up and they would be shipping the correct coil right away.  So hopefully I'll have one by next week. 

Any luck getting that coil?

They sent me a label to return the wrong coil and told me as soon as they received it back I would be getting the 4x6 “fresh off the assembly line direct from White’s”.   So I’m guessing that means I’ll be waiting awhile.

I said I’d see if I could find a White’s dealer at that Treasure show I went to if they had any 4 x 6 coils. I found out real quick you would be hard press to find anything relating to White’s detectors.

 The detectors they had a drawing for was a Nox 600 and two Makro/Nokta. I guess I didn’t win any due to the fact I’d got the call yesterday. Story of my life .

Yay, good for you! I do believe I will round one up for myself.

Steve, I think I  will stay with the Hot Foot and wait and see how your review of the new 4"×6" goes.

I’d be getting the coil for a 24K and I doubt you are saying you are using a Hot Foot on a Goldmaster 24K? Presumably you are using it in some other machine like the GMT. At a minimum you would need to change the plug since 24K/GMK coils are not plug compatible with the GMT and earlier Goldmaster coils. But maybe you have done that, and if so it would be interesting to hear about it and how well it’s working. I would think there is a high probability of the Hot Foot overloading at higher gain levels if employed on the 24K or GMK.

I would not hold your breath for a review. I’m in no hurry to get the coil and have no idea when I would get around to using it. Since I have the 6” concentric which would be my preference anyway this is just a whim purchase. It would take just the right circumstances for me to actually use it, like deep, crevice and pocket riddled bedrock or some extreme mineral ground. The bottom line is when I have a detector I have kind of a knee jerk thing about getting the available coils that go with it. :smile:

      I recently purchased the Goldmaster 24k. In preparation for my first outing I made a test bed of different materials in my back yard. I also printed of the Conductive Order of Metals which was set up based on the Whites Spectrum XLT.
      So my test bed consisted of a nail, pulltab, penny, nickle, dime, quarter, gold ring. After setting up my detector based on Whites quick start guide I did my testing. Here are the visual target id results. I wanted to compare them to the Conductive Order of Metals
      GMT 24k reading.                        nail 39   pulltab 91  penny 95  nickle 89  dime 97. quarter 98  gold wedding ring 94
      Conductive Order of Metals       nail 0     pulltab 35  penny 56   nickle 28  dime 70  quarter 82  gold wedding ring 40
      As you can not even close. So am I wrong in thinking the GMT 24k should follow the Conductive Order of Metals listing? Is there some other listing I should be looking at or is there no corelation at all? Thanks for any help.

      White's have lost the plot, first they up the price of the 24k making it far less competitive with other options which to me made it no longer a viable option when it wasn't a good seller in the first place. They then they come out with a waterproof version in the form of a rehash.  Why not leave the price of the 24k where it was and make the waterproof option the new 24k price point?
      Perhaps they should have just made the 24k waterproof in the first place, it's the way detectors are heading anyway.  I'm new to detecting and I've already lost patience with all this rehash rubbish, I feel sorry for you folks that have been in the game for a long time, at least they went beyond a paint job I guess If I was a 24k buyer I'd be angry now.
