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 !

You made a funny on me getting out before it gets hot. One day it will be 90 then 99 and before the week is out it will hit a 100 .

 Even the Devil moved out of Texas long ago because it gets too hot here.

PS Keep the videos coming Please

Not sure if I have a problem. When I put the pigtail on it cuts off the speaker and to my thinking it shouldn’t do that. That’s unless I plug in a 1/8 headphones into the pigtail..

 I just wanted to have the pigtail on to keep the dirt out of the plug on the Tarsacci.

 I thank you ahead for any reply I get.

Hey Chuck, 

Thats correct, once the pigtail is connected the speaker is deactivated. Don’t worry about dirt or dust getting in the M8 connector, you can always flush it out with some water. It’s IP68 waterproof. 😊👍

Just slap some electric tape over connections like that. Including the speaker especially if your wading.  Might not be necessary but a little piece of mind.

Why would you want to hunt without headphones Chuck???  I never recommend it.

 I had headphones on before detectors had a plug for them . I went to Rat Shack got the female part and drilled a hole in a new detector. Now sometimes I have hunted without headphones but don’t see me doing that with the Tarsacci.

 I’d guarantee you will find more wearing headphones than not. It’s that faint signal that may pay off for you that you didn’t hear if you didn’t have headphones on.

 I know that I don’t know everything but I got my wife thinking I do .

 One time she ask me something and I said I don’t know. She said I thought you knew everything and I said I do but I tell you only if I think you need to know. That bump on my head still hurts.

How do I follow-up to that response???? 😄

  I think if going to Rat Shack and I bought a female part, there would be more than one lump on my head!!!!

      Just got the TARsacci, and am new to it . so I was out at the park and kept getting signals that after digging the plug i got no sound. so I thought G WIZZ could anything be that deep ? so i dug down and down and finnaly the pinpointer started to beep. and i figured it must be a big iron .  but low and behold at a full 14" up comes a brass lamp part. and get this i did not have the detector maxed out  i was in 6.5khz black sand on and salinity on at 37 and a gain of 5 and threshold of 2.  Also it can agnor some kinda beefy foils and not only ignore them on the suface, ( I dug no small foils)  but you can whack a penny derectly under the foil and no masking like 7" under the foil I did the testing . no VLF I know will do that . I will be selling my TDI soon  the Tarsacci not only ignors the small foils but can hit silver and Gold under the foil

      The 12 inch coil is awesome in the iron. Still no silver. But I just haven’t gotten over top of it yet.  That small flat button was at least 12 inches down and next to iron!

      No pics to show, but I did a video, can’t upload it to this forum. But I wanted to say the one reason I wanted to try the Tarsacci was I heard it might be doable in the red dirt of VA.  I have a friend that lives near Culpeper and she has a test garden. Items have been in the ground for about 5 months.  The tarsacci heard the targets at different depths with no issues.  I love this machine and will use it at the upcoming hunts this fall in the red dirt!  The deus struggled and only heard a few targets in the same test garden.

      Just got this machine, so i just wanted to take it out in the yard i have hunted for 4 weeks with the XP ORXand DEUS , after digging some tabs , which amazed me as i had been over this spot , and not just one but 6 targets i missed then i find the sterling Military pendant at 7" deep . I did not dig one Iron item, but i could hear iron .  all i can say is this machine is different and its good ,very good .  in 5 minutes this machine pulled out the 1st silver from this site.

      A site that plenty of us have hit, the tarsacci finds the old brass in the iron! 🙂 8 colonial buttons!

      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
