Doesn't always have to be Gold (To get the tingle)

Happens more for me at the beach or wading. Hunting along the vast expanse, very few (if any) good targets. Then you pass over that little ting. Couple steps something goes off in your brain. "What was that?" So backing up to find that little something, a whisper, that feint, little ahhh. Well, what's this? So scrape some sand off with your foot. Little louder, sounds good. Dig. Doesn't matter what it is. The fact that your machine squeezed that target out at its deepest extreme, and you caught it. Say hey, how about that?

I get far more pleasure in finding that green quarter that I had to work to even hear enough signal to be able to pinpoint. Those ear ring backs, Rivets off lawn chairs and stuff like that do not make me happy. Danged things sound so good and you think they are a deeper target due to the weaker signal and then you find they are very shallow and require work to find as they fall thru the scoop.

LOL, laughing at myself. Every time I get the faint signal that gets louder with each scoop a song plays in my head. "It started with a whisper" :heh:

Weak signal......... go back...... dig to china its a can or sunglasses. Ya OMG those friggen chair rivits or cut outs....... ugh. But..... a good many times its the high conductors that get our attention. One thing about the Nox ive found...... adjusting the PITCH for various bins (combo of digits) can make foil screen if you want it to. First thing i tell some of the dirt diggers who want to beach hunt..... you arent coin hunting ..... retrain your brain.

So how do you set up for the beach:? Disc out 0-5, 18-27 perhaps? I'm thinking of trying it...

Dancer....like yourself I LOVE beach detecting and hearing those strong signals but also those faint deep but distinct sounds indicating a possible ring or?? I've learned not to raise my hopes up too high but you wish that it be a ring or a piece of gold jewelry.....anything except a pull tab!!! It's a let down when you dig a foot or more in wet sand to find nothing of value but you move on to the next signal all the while hoping for gold!:thumbup:
