I see that some may not have the external speaker and I think that’s good but may not have the upgrade battery compartment .

 Dealers out there now may have one option are none but can you get a upgrade at no cost to you the buyer?

Chuck are you going diving with your Tarsacci - the "upgrades" really don't matter if you are not hunting in chest deep water and even then, the Tarsacci is still warrantied to work.  Don't over think it.  This is a small time operation, there are going to be slow incremental changes but basically you are going to get what you are going to get and will have to pay for upgrades.  Hopefully Aaron can get on soon to let you know the status of these battery compartment upgrades and speaker mods, but unless you are going diving with it, it really doesn't matter.  Nothing has changed as far as detector operation.  Also, despite these changes, I have not heard that Dimitar is changing the specs on the unit - it is still only going to be guaranteed for 1.5 meters submersion for 30 minutes.  I like the fact that I don't have to worry about it at all in a driving rainstorm nor do I have to worry about it if it takes a dunk in the water.  One thing you will need to do, however, is get a decent set of waterproof phones with the requisite special headphone connector (the Tarsacci doesn't use a standard headphone jack) and that will set you back another $100+ dollars at least.  That is a special order item from a third party like Tony Eisenhower.  Tarsacci does not supply waterproof phones with the unit or offer them as an accessory.

Chase  I understand from where you’re coming from and no I’m not going diving with it . I do know how salt water has a bad effect on anything over time.

 Some time back I drop a non water detector in freshwater. I picked it up and emptied the water then removed the battery pack. Went to my car and turned the heat on and within 20 minutes I was up running. I’ve never had trouble with that detector but if that was saltwater it would been history.

 The only stupid question is the one you don’t ask.

Agree.  Hopefully Aaron can clarify the Tarsacci game plan with respect to the modded variants and how you can be guaranteed to get the configuration you desire.

I rarely hunt anywhere but IN the salt water.   like a timeX .... mines taken a licken and is still ticken.  I told Tom when i first got mine we just didnt need a speaker.   Not only do we not use them, it uses more battery, cant hear it as well.... especially on a beach and they likely will leak.   Ive always used a nylon sticker over my speaker area.... even my dirt machines.   Id say there is only one place the machine might leak without this speaker.... where the wires come in at the front of the box where they go back to the battery box.  HOWEVER.... im certain Dimitar seals that very well.  Me and a couple beach guys have gotten water in the battery box found when taking out the battery to charge.   Rinse, blow out, use anti rust.... and good to go.  Id be amazed if one of those connectors would ever be an issue.  I cant advocate dunking any ones machine like mine has been with the water rating.... which is an industrial rating.  So hopefully these upgraded ones he will feel more comfortable.   He does detect and has been for years.

 You said something about wires that must be exposed going to the battery box.I’ve looked at Tarsacci and I don’t see the wiring you’re talking about. If said wiring is exposed and not going inside the handle I would call that a weak design. As you said if I don’t plan on getting in the water then a battery box maybe leaking wouldn’t be a problem. That’s true! But at the same time if I wish to do so two things just happen. The first the battery box could leak if I walk in water to use it what it’s intended for and the second is I didn’t get what I paid for that being a waterproof detector.

 Aaron showed a video how to take care of the O-rings and if it will fix a simple problem then that becomes not a problem.

I did find a large picture of the Tarsacci and I could zoom in but yet to see any expose wiring going to the battery box.

 Waiting to hear from you Dewcon4414 on the possibility of said wiring.

There are no exposed wiring in the TARSACCI’s battery compartment nor inside the handle beneath the control box.

 I thank you for for the quick reply. I just pickup on his statement and I had to find out if it was true.

 Now we all know it’s not so.

      Had a good friend loan me his Tarsacci for a few months. Settings: Sens 9, Black sand ON,  Salt 33, 9khz, disc -30, G-bal 623. Tested both coils
      First off, if you are tall like me the detector is NOT long enough. I know Steve is working on an extension but here is the problem. Not enough coil cable length. So if you are tall and plan to order one, be sure to ask for longer coil cable length . Myself, I would need 4-5 inches more rod length.
      Pros: Works good in the wave wash [all metal mode], good depth, silent running wet sand, NO EMI issues in a known EMI problem area, Awesome battery, good sound and volume. Pinpoints well in mixed mode, good target separation, fast recovery speed, large coil was just as stable in saltwater.
      Cons: Too short, lousy coil mount location on small coil, poor on target identification [vdi display]. Iron wrap around issues, gold chain issue?.
      I will probably ramble some so if you have a question please ask. For the most part worked in all metal.
      I was impressed how the Tarsacci handled moving salt water. While it is no GT Sovereign, it is 100% better than the Equinox. There is an initial disturbance by the wave and then sometimes on withdrawal but working in the wash is more than workable. Also you will never lose or bury a target in a hole of soft sand like the equinox. The tarsacci will chase it all the way until you recover.
      The ability of the machine to give you tone and VDI numbers at depth is a question. I was not confident that the machine separates the difference between iron and non-ferrous well at depth. While I dug very few nails and no bobby pins the MDT had an issue with the ferrous Mexican coins. Many of them would want to ring-up and some of them indicated must dig.  I would say anything past 8 inches had issues to where the target would not lock-out. I am sure more time on this machine would solve some of this confidence. One tip I have on deep targets is to take a small scoop of sand 3-4 inches off. The MDT did better reading targets regardless if there was water in the hole made or not.
      On my last day both myself and my friend were on the MDT and myself the Equinox. I found a gold wrist chain that had a small name plate on it. I hit a solid 5. When we got together the MDT would not lock out on the chain with the 12”round coil, even on top of it. I could take the Equinox to about 4” above it and still locked out at 5.       
      All in all, the machine was a pleasure to use. The increased coverage of the larger coil is well noted, and in my case no difference in salt water effect on the machine. Target identification takes a bit longer than the Equinox, but the MDT exceeds in moving water contact. It is not even close. Also the loss of EMI issues for three blocks of beach is a huge plus.  Dave

      Many folks have inquired just how does tracking work and how do you set it? 
      Here’s a quick video that explains everything!

      I ended up getting out in the lake last weekend & finding another really deep Buffalo with co-located iron. Not too much else, people won’t start swimming till the end of May. I stick to the iron areas that most avoid, going slow.

      Thanks,

      I had to go out of town yesterday and got back late today and had planned to take my Tarsacci with me but didn’t.
       I wanted to educate myself on going through the menu of my Tarsacci but could only watch your videos on how to do it .
       Well I pickup my Tarsacci and without looking at anything I ran through everything like I’d been doing it for a long time.
       I figure with your time and trouble making all the videos reduced my learning curve saving me lots of time.
       The speaker on the Tarsacci don’t boom out but with the headphones on they blow the wax out of your ears.
       Thanks Aaron !

      Today I went to a site that I was trying to find the rest of a “Civil War gold corps badge”, I found part of it a few months ago with my DEUS....thinking that if any machine will find the rest of it the Tarsacci will find it.   The target separation with that 12 inch coil is pretty awesome!  But, it didn’t happen.  Not today anyways.  But I was in the area we gridded and the tarsacci was hitting some very deep brass and under the iron, that just keeps impressing me about this machine! I know one of the targets was at least 15 inches!  I will have to get a new shovel if this keeps up! I think Dimitar needs to include a taller shovel with every sale of the “Tarsacci”!! 
      No Silver yet with the tarsacci, but I know thats coming!

      I was going out my door yesterday and here comes the mail man with my Tarsacci. I didn’t have the time to open the box and take a look. I was headed to a wild birthday party of a 7 year old granddaughter that I couldn’t miss . She may never know what I gave up for her. Then getting home late and other family at my house I again had to put it off opening that box.
       Here I sit in my little corner of my church waiting for service to start telling you all this a day later.
       I did get the box open and got my Tarsacci fired up and that’s all .
       All together now.   Poor Chuck  
       
       Happy Easter to all and best to all on what life has to offer.
