Good and Bad Gamma 6000

Todd in Hanover Pa. USA - best

It picks up a small single loop earring to about 3". Man's wedding band - at 7". Not a small gold machine. Also, I tested the detector today, set discrimination level to 55, that eliminates iron and foil, it still picks up a nickle to 5". So you won't be digging jink. As for large iron, it gives a quarter signal on the high end. All tests were conducted with a waterproof DD coil. I still like all the features. It is a good machine for the money.

Good and Bad about Gamma 6000

Todd in Hanover, PA. - best

I have been detecting off and on for thirty years, I was looking for a new detector that met all my needs and I got the gamma, [1] lighweight [2] runs on one 9 volt [3] ground ballance for the beach [4] discrimination and notch disc. [5]sensitivity setting [6]all metal mode [7] two digit target identification number... Here is the air test results: nickel - 9", quarter - 8", penny - 7", dime - 7", Kennedy Half - 8", Eisenhower Dollar - 9". Here is the bad: not waterproof, the battery door is cheep, with iron eliminated you get quarter signals sound like large iron, will not pick up small gold, like an earring, it must be larger than a small pendant, power button to close to the Pinpoint button. Good detector overall for the money. I don't know many that are better. Optional DD waterproof coil covers a lot of ground and is also lightweight. Made by Fisher.
