The legendary performance of the MXT is like having three metal detectors in one! This detector is as comfortable hunting for coins in the park as searching old battlefields for relics. Its easy operation and performance were designed by prospectors for the tough task of finding gold.
Three separate programs give you versatility with different target responses, display info, and audio frequencies for Relics, Prospecting, and Coins/Jewelry.
Relic: Specifically identifies buttons, buckles, and bullets with three options for tone ID.
Prospecting: Iron Grunt for targets with high probability of being iron.
Coin/Jewelry: Coin/jewelry/trash target ID with distinct tone IDs.
All modes have automatic ground balance, overload alert, VDI range of -95 to +95, and 3-easy-to-adjust controls:
Gain maximizes sensitivity and depth. Threshold allows you to hunt with a slight hum or hear only the sound of detected targets. Dual control functions differently in each program.

Best detectorI've had my detector about 7 years, had a gold prospector before could not find as much as my newer MXT. I took it up to Nome a few years back and had some trouble on the beach trying to get it balanced. It took 3 day messing with it for about 3 hours a day, I found GOLD with it. Found the problem was there was so much fine gold the it would not ground balance. But it works great every where else.
It is a good machine but it is noisey. Spot on with nickels and quarters. Silver rings real good. Gold rings another story.I bought this metal detector cause of the name and the good reviews it had. It really is a good machine.
It takes sometime to get to know it so play with it alot. Gold rings have really been a challange for me with this machine. As with all gold rings they are in the pulltab range and seems kinda flakey at times. I do miss the multitone other detector have. This one does have two tones but only in the relic mode. I might have researched it more and gone with the MXT PRO over this one in the beginning. I wish someone who really understands this machine would write a book on just finding gold rings. I have heard so many opinions on sounds, VDI's, headphone selection. It gets kinda confusing.
