Discrimination on 2BA

I have recently decided to try and use my old 2ba. I noticed that no matter how high I turned up the distribution, I would still get an a beep out of the discrimination side. It is not as noticeable as when it is turned down where it beeps better on the target, but it will never just sound off with only the all metal tone. It is more like a chirp. Is that normal?

Hard to tell with out hearing it. Does it chirp on disc. Side even if not over a target? If so bad coil aka out of balance. But at a site with a lot of nails you should get all metal only over them. Maybe if you got a nail infested site try it there as Nautys won't false on nails like other detectors.

I haven't actually tried it out hunting yet. Just trying to learn it again. It only beeps when over a target. I put a Minnie ball on the ground and tried it out. It beeps really good at lower discrimination, but when I turn it up all the way, it still gives a beep, not as good as when the discriminate is lower, but still a chirp. My other detector will completely discriminate a target out. I figure that I should only hear a target in the all metal side of my headphone.

I don't think they disc. That high. I always run mine at 20 disc. And let the Tones tell Me if I want to dig or not. I'm a old coin hunter and use mine at sites that are supposedly hunted out and what coins that are left are deep. SO listen for that soft almost disc. Only tone at the edge of depth. If I hear that I get ready to dig deeeeep!

Do you mean that they won't completely discriminate out? I hunt Civil War relics. I just want to turn it up enough to knock out the small iron.

The iron should give all metal only. At 20 it will knock out small nails but foil and 22 shell casings will still come through. But like I said I hunt old coins so maybe a True Relic Hunter can chime in. I just use the Tones as they are very informative once learned.
