Hey af647..............! Good to see someone still using this detector besides me. :cheers:
I just love my "modified the hell outta it" 220D. Sure I'd like to have a "4500" but I'd like to have a new Camero too! :crazy: I'll be looking forward to your posting.

I think Tony found that pic on my site. "Big Bud Pro" was all the info I had for it and the pic is too tiny to see any details. I have manuals for eight different "Bud" detector models. The 220 is one of the later Big Bud Pro models, according to a PDF manual I have. It is also referred to as "Select 220" in that same manual, and there is also a Select 220-D.

At the moment, I have no idea what the differences between all of them are. I'd be glad to add more info about them to my site. I don't have many "Bud" pics, mostly just the manuals in text format. Those I need to read through and edit before putting them online.

I'd contact Bounty Hunter to see if they still have parts for it. They'll do the best job for you, as they tend to replace with new parts, which can be a new coil and control board. If it's just a connector issue, they may only repair that. You won't know your options and costs till you contact them.

Next up is Keith Wells, www.brokendetector.com, but he can be somewhat spendy. He goes through the entire machine and also field tests it before returning it to you. I'd check frst for costs and availability before sending.

I have a 220-D. It's black. It's digital on the display (I think that's what the "D" means) Models without the "D" use an analog meter.

Tony,

I had a Big Bud Pro EXACTLY like the one in the picture, it was (as I remember) just marked Big Bud Pro. The coil was not quite the same, as it had "arrows" pointing to the center for helping pinpoint, but it looked almost exactly the same.

I bought a Whites (can't remember the model) and the wife started detecting with me using the BBPro, she LOVED it. When hard times hit us in 1997, we sold both... she has never forgotten that BBP, and I am determined to find one, as I have since bought 2 other detectors which are more complicated, and she won't attempt to use them! Want to get her back in the hobby.

SO... I too am looking for a BBPro, RED, BTW. If anyone finds one, PLEASE let me know if there is another available!

Thanks,

Ed
