Steve - for the 600, my understanding is that you cannot adjust tone pitch for the non-ferrous tones.  For 50 tone mode (where I plan to be nearly 100% of the time), as far as adjusting the tone gap (tone pitch) from the 1, 20 default, I take it that you can only adjust the ferrous number up, but the non-ferrous pitch number remains fixed at 20, correct?  Does that mean, you can lower the tone gap only by raising the ferrous tone, but not by lowering the non-ferrous tone (or both) on the 600.  In other words, to lower the 50 tone ferrous - to - non-ferrous gap on the 600, you have to increase the ferrous tone which, I suppose, can be raised all the way to 19.

Even though I am not getting the 600, I kind of wish they just kept the tone adjustment options the same between the two models.  I think this is just going to unnecessarily create confusion and frustration amongst the ("have not") 600 users.  It's minor, but this is another reason I am glad I opted for the 800.

I would be interested in the combination of settings that would mimic the sounds of the etrac or ctx. After years of learning the etrac and ctx language I think it would speed up my learning if I could make the EQ similar. Multi conduct tones.

There is still the ability to use the 3030 way of doing things with 4 tones in the upper part of the screen and an iron tone across the bottom.  This is appears to be the same idea but in 50 tone instead.  It will not be necessary to adjust tone pitch here and I am willing to bet after a season I will be able to hear the difference between an old wheat and a new wheat!  I would warn against trying to modify a bunch of settings to make it like your 3030 at the outset.  I made that mistake on my 3030 trying to get it to mimic the settings on my Etrac.  I cant wait to see how awesome you do with it Mountain Mike!

      I'd like to increase my knowledge and skill in tuning my Nox 800 for specific conditions.
      Those of you who tune your machines off the factory defaults, please share what you have!  Not what your settings are, but how you arrive at those settings.
      For instance, is there a relationship between different settings, such, that a preferred order of operations is suggested for optimal results?  I noise cancel, then ground grab, then adjust sensitivity.  FE2, Recovery, Threshold, is there a best practice for the order in which they are set?
      How do you know when you should increase or decrease FE2 or Recovery?  What factors or indicators go into that decision?
      I've arrived at my current default beginning state, by trying to make things first "worse" in my test garden.  By adjusting each setting individually up and down though the full range of adjustment, noting whether signal got better or worse at each step, to get what I considered the best signal on a deep silver coin.  But doing so in a controlled situation with a known target like that is one thing, knowing how to read variable conditions and how to tune accordingly is quite another.
      How do you make your tuning decisions in the field?  What are the settings you most frequently find need adjusted to accommodate search conditions?
      - Dave

      Here are some improvements to the ergonomics of the minelab equinox 600/800 made with a 3D printer

      Just like the college sports transfer portal, I too have decided to change my mind.😁  I was set on buying the new NM Legend.  Instead I visited a local MD dealer today and had a chance to test drive the dealers Equinox 800. The Equinox 800 checked every box and then some.  It will get me where I want to be in metal detecting.  The dealer was pretty impressed on how I was able to navigate through the controllers menus and settings. It is on order and will be here next week.  Now for the "goodies" getting thrown in for free.  Both editions of Andy Sabisch's Handbooks on the Equinox 600/800, a Minelab Hat (I love hats), and any magazine, current or past editions that are in stock.  And there are a lot in stock.  Excited is an understatement.

      I had a very productive day hunting a city park in a nearby town. Took me 7 1/2 hours to round up all these keepers. The v nickel is the fifth one I've taken out of this park in the last 2 weeks. Ended up with a nickel trifecta to boot.  I think I'm going to get the 5x10 coil due to the amount of iron and debris in the places that are producing the coins. I did pretty good by going nice and slow and digging all iffy tones. I was very surprised to see the Canadian quarter come out, that's the second one I've found this year.

      I went back to a park that's been producing some good finds. Today was a very unusual nickel day. Ended up with 3 silver war nickels, a v nickel, an unidentified coin, 4 Wheaties and a religious medallion. I didn't really have a goal this year for silver coins but with today's finds that puts me at 112 for the year. Running park 1...2 tones..no disc...manual gb at 30..recovery speed 3..iron bias at F2-0.. tone break at 10...sens 23.  All war nickels hit at 15, the V hit 12-13, the unidentified coin(?) hits at 12.

      Hello everyone, maybe some information about orientation in minelab equinox 800, I searched a lot, but I can't find such information.
      I am looking for information on minelab equinox 800 in the ground balance how we can orient ourselves in the numbers for setting the ground in the ground balance, on the equinox 800 the numbers are from - 9 to +100 how to find out how much our land is ore.
      On some brands of metal detectors soil balance is from 0 to 100 and 100 is the most degraded land ?
