You’ll want it with you when you’re scanning the beach for treasure. Kelly, ‘Treasure hunting in Ireland – its rise and fall’, Antiquity, Vol.
We have thousands of metal detectors from all the top manufacturers in stock and ready for shipment. It was a pleasure doing business with you and I will recommend your fine business to my other detecting buddies. I just want to thank Sondra and the rest of the gang for my Minelab Explorer SE. Yesterday I took my Garrett Ace 250 out for the first time to some local parks.
Larger portable Metal Detectors Hub are used by archaeologists and treasure hunters to locate metallic items, such as jewelry, coins, bullets, and other various artifacts buried beneath the surface. Modern top models are fully computerized, using integrated circuit technology to allow the user to set sensitivity, discrimination, track speed, threshold volume, notch filters, etc., and hold these parameters in memory for future use.
The waterproof 6″ round Double-D coil is very sensitive to small targets, and perfect for finding treasure in high trash areas. Minelab 11″ round DD Smart Coil for the Minelab CTX 3030. Maximize your treasure hunting at an affordable price with the TREASUREpro.
There are five to choose from – Jewelry, custom, relics, coins, and no discrimination. 8 kHz means you’ll pick up pretty much everything if you listen closely, but uping the kHz finds objects with greater conductivity such as gold. This machine is simple yet informative and a great place to begin.
3 tone audio identification can ping out audio tones set to differing metals, so set gold to high for example and listen for the high pitched tones. It also has an iron identifier LED that lights up when you swing it above yet more coke cans and trash. If you set the audio to a high pitch for gold and bass for silver you don’t even have to look at the screen, just keep your eyes applied to the soil. Only the best entry-level metal detectors retune themselves quickly, which the Fisher F22 does with ease. Its light, ergonomically designed, easy to swing and sturdy enough for the more professional hobbyist.
Don’t worry if you can’t afford a high-end Minelab right away; get an intro model and go find some stuff. Most new hobbyists tend to spend $150-$300 on their first detector.
It’s your job to drop tin foil, nails, coins and gold in your yard and play with discrimination. As you increase discrimination the machine will ignore other metals like tin foil, can tabs, nails, and coins. Low discrimination means all metal including soil minerals, are picked up. A machine with ground balancing detects what type of ground you’re on, and eliminates the unwanted minerals in response.
Although user manuals give a good indication of the best frequencies, and some models have a ‘coin’ or ‘gold’ setting, it’s no comparison to learning all the squeaks and blips of your own machine – ‘Hector the Detector’. Renting a metal detector also gives you the opportunity to try out different brands. It’s best to move slowly and steadily so the coil has time to register a target. When the magnetic field is placed over a metal object the current flows through the metal object and back into the detector activating the receiver coil. Control Box – the metal detector’s brain is located here alongside the power source.
