Help Select Detector For Search Thin Gold

Recommended Posts

Hi all users DetectorProspector.. I want to buy detector for thin gold jewelry : chain, earrings (underwater search) . Now I use Tesoro Compadre but not enough depth . And I think what need to buy detector PRO - level with high frequency. But I'm confused. My choice fell to 3 devices:

GoldenMask One 24
Deeptech Vista Gold / Gold Gain
Whites TDI Beach Hunter

or Yours alternative's. 

Please tell me, what metal detector is the deepest for thin jewelry? And can good work to heavy soil? Thanks

P.S. Sorry to my English

If you do mean detecting in saltwater a Minelab Equinox is about as good as you will get for small gold jewelry. There is a limit to what can be done in saltwater since small gold and saltwater signals are the same at a certain point.

The only serious alternative on the horizon that might do better is the new Fisher Impulse AQ.

In freshwater the new Nokta/Makro Gold Kruzer is a machine I like, waterproof and very hot on small gold. Too hot for saltwater though.

Hi Steve. Thanks to answer. In salt water I'll be seldom . Most of them are freshwater lakes and rivers.  For example, my Compadre can "see" gold cloves earrings ( weight 0.3gr)  at 2 -3 inches, I want detector which can see at 5-8 inch or better)))

 

 

P.S. Turkish detectors I dont want, becose I owned Makro Racer 2 and this detector were terrible. ( he is not detect coin on edge close up !!! at  coil

My Racer 2 was great. Sorry to hear about yours.

Unfortunately wanting great depth on very thin and tiny stuff is not the same as being able to get it. You could try a Minelab Gold Monster 1000 or White’s Goldmaster 24K. If money is no object the Minelab SDC 2300 is the machine of choice for many people wanting maximum performance on small gold.

I was gonna add the Multi Kruzer too Steve, but if the OP is predisposed to disliking the Turkish machines then it won’t help.  19kHz is slamming on little gold jewelry in the fresh water that I hunt!!!

      I’m interested in finding a used Tejon. The Tesoro’s remind me of the Sovereign GT in some ways.

      I was hunting some pasture a downhill slope where some area has been levelled out looking like a foundation of some kind. For me it looks like there has been some kind of building or similar but nothing left except green grass. I found this item. Cleaning it up I found 6 sun-markings. 3 to the left of the tip and 3 to the right. Could it be a part of a sundial? Any suggestions on the age?

      Hello - I'm looking some help locating an old issue of Lost Treasure Magazine.  For years I held on to the August 2007 issue because of an article in it titled "Train Robbers Loot Found in Denver".  Unfortunately, I can no longer find the issue and am searching for another copy of it or of that article.   Any help you can give me would be greatly appreciated!

      So there was a rattle inside my T2 when swinging it so I popped it open to have a look what the rattle was.  It was a loose black wire,  I can't see anywhere it was meant to be soldered on, the wire is stripped at the end but no visible signs it was ever soldered anywhere.

      This is a photo of a T2 board I found on the web, I've marked the black wire with the Red circle showing the wire in question.
      There is some hot glue on the back of the control box case that looks like it could possibly be the location where the end of the wire is meant to be, maybe it was just hot glued onto the control housing? 
      The T2 is working perfectly with this wire not connected to anything, it's damn lucky it didn't hit something and short it while it was floating loose inside the control box.
      It's not worth sending the T2 overseas for this to be fixed and it's out of warranty now anyway, especially seeing it's working fine so I was hoping someone knew what this wire is for and where it's meant to be connected to.  I think I'm right it was just hot glued to the case but I'd like to know for sure.   I also have no idea why it would be there like that, like an antenna?
      Also, The T2 is a bit of a pain with EMI, has anyone considered or used EMI reducing coatings on housing to calm down emi?  I've always known they existed but never tried one so it would be good to hear from someone who has had experience with them.
      This is the one I think might be the best, but there is also EMI reducing tapes and the more traditional metal with holes in it method.

      Could also do it the dodgy way and stick tin foil onto the inside of the plastic housing 🙂
      It would work, if you wrap your mobile phone in tin foil and try calling it, the phone won’t have any signal. These radio waves are a form of EMF radiation. The tin foil acts as a barrier and completely blocks those waves.
      Thanks in advance for any help.

      Using Wi Stream module is helping me vs Bluetooth wireless headphones.
      Like to hear some other folks reports using Wi Stream with Nox in difficult sites.
