Tomorrow, 30th July...........

im using the Tarsacci MDT on its first Roman site tomorrow,, 

The field has only the headland cut,, (wholecrop silage),, but I can't wait to experiment with the Tarsacci, I will only have a few hours to spare here but really looking forward to this opportunity!

ive been detecting this site since the early nineties,, (Fisher 1265X)  was the first detector I ever used here....(loved that machine),, and numerous other detectors since!

Site has been detected heavily throughout, not just by me , but numerous of other people, so,,, should be an excellent place to see what the Tarsacci can unearth,,,, .. For the record, I detected this site last year and only found about  half a dozen coins,,, in a whole days hunt,, so it will be a great test!

Hopefully some photos of Finds to follow, and a brief summary of how it went!

regards

Dave. H

My first Roman search with the Tarsacci went very well, sadly though the stubble was much longer than I imagined, only a few areas were short, most was just too high for detecting.

However, I found Roman coins, including a early silver! loads of silvers have come from here over the past years! Really cuffed to get my first silver with the MDT,,,. I've not tried to ID it yet, but looks an early one.

Not much else turned up, a couple of shotgun tops, one piece of lead,didn't get caught out with much iron, really is quite easy to tell Iron using the Tarsacci, the best area of the field as for Finds go is still in crop, so will have to get back later, may probably wait for the field to be cultivated, taking into account the long stubble.

Settings .

TrH, -4,,,, any higher was getting noisy, -1 was unusable here.

Dsc, -30

Sens, 7 ,,,, very stable 

GB, auto 910/930

Disc mode

ST, 41

Black sand, OFF

TRACK, OFF

Fc, 12K & 18K

The -4 on TrH,, made all the difference here today, no false signals from the Coil touching the stubble, all together a very enjoyable 3 hour search, can't wait to get back here again, always a good test for any new detector is a well searched out site, gives a good insight to how good the machine should be.

I'm so far delighted with the MDT.

 

Regards.

Dave.

Thanks Aaron,, appreciate your commitment.

PS. Just to put the record straight,,,,,,,

I paid Tarsacci for my machine, $1,200 + UK import duties, and VAT when it arrived in the U.K.

So far, I'm  more than happy with my investment!

thanks.

Dave.

Yes, you did Dave, as per the ad I placed on Rogers Relics. However someone has lied and said otherwise to fit their own agenda.....

Keep up the great work Dave, we’re proud of you mate!

      How many of MDT users like the tones of disc mode?   I don’t like it. It sounds like a toy.   Mixed mode is what I use.

      The MDT 8000 has an IP68 rating - up to 1.5 meters for up to 30 minutes. I’d call that more a wading detector than a mask & snorkel detector. On the other hand, I’d bet the MDT is at least as waterproof as an Equinox, if not more so.  I don’t think any of these so-called 10 foot detectors have a genuine waterproof rating exceeding IP68, simply based on the coil and headphone connectors being employed
      The question being, how deep for how long? Who, if anyone, has had the MDT submerged for more than a few hours? I’d assume that simply wading using the supplied headphones, with controls submerged nor more than a foot or two, would be good almost indefinitely? Though technically that’s not what the rating says. Up to 1.5 meters for up to 30 minutes.
      Anyone doing fully submersible? I just missed on a used set of Tony Eisenhower phones for the MDT, so I know that they at least are being made for the MDT. Is anyone else making underwater phones for the unit? I’ve got a set of Minelab yellow Koss I’ve considered converting, but need to prove I’d actually be sticking my head in the water more than I’m doing now before I’d go that route.
      The machine appears tight enough. The only thing I’d wish for off hand is that Dimitar double the number of threads on the battery cap. They seem sufficient, but just barely, and a few more turns would add some psychological safety at least.
