If I set the F75 for high tone on nickels will square tabs and beaver tails also give a high tone?

Yes but in my soil square tabs ID a point or two higher and deeper beaver tails read exactly as nickels , 29 to 30.

If everything was normal, good dirt, the most usual ID's, sta tabs come in a little lower around 32-35 and beaver tails higher into the low 40's especially the bigger folded over ones but there are several smaller types that come in lower just like sta tabs too.
Just the tail off the beaver tails come in around 32-33 or so...or at least those were common readings at most of the more shallow depths and definitely out of the dirt back out west in Kansas when I hunted there.
If you come across deep ones of either type like at 8-9 or 10" these things change to a very nice high tone on most Fishers for some reason...many have reported this and I have seen this myself several times.

Several parks I hunt have all kinds of mixtures like even on both, more stay tabs at one, more beaver tails at another.
One time I was at an older park that had a ton of both but a lot more beaver tails and even though I usually hunt with little or no disc I was tired and decided to knock them all out on my F70.
This kills me to do this being the gold hunter that I am.
A situation like this was one of the few times I wish I had the ability the F75's do to knock out only half the tab range...keep in the sta tabs but kick out the beaver tails.
I have found way more gold rings in the lower area closer to nickels by far than the few I have found in that higher area and I would have been been happy with that on that hunt.

Some will and a lot of them that do will not sound as good as a nickel. Some old buttons and gold will claim to be a nickel too. Keeps it interesting.

Depth makes a difference also plus position either laying on it's side or flat. I get them to come in above 65 sometimes and I still can't figure that one out.

I was asking because I watched a video of someone testing the foil and nickel range and when part of the foil range was disc out he would miss all kinds of gold. Some of the rings would not be detected if the disc setting was one number away.It makes me wonder how much gold I have been missing by rejecting square tabs and foil.

This might clue you in.
There is a reason I rarely go too much higher than 21 on my disc, most times it is way lower than that.

Since I'm fairly new to the F75 I guess I better get use to digging some foil and square tabs if I wanna find the gold goodies. I sure like this machine and I'm having lots of fun learning it.

Reason you have to dig them. Just a few days ago.

One good point is I don't dig all trash signals to find gold, I quit being a dig it all hunter long ago as I leave Ned my tools better and better.
I might miss something but that's fine, I still find a ton.
What I do dig are all solid signals no matter where they come in from low foil on up to find gold.
Fishers seem to love to find this metal, if you pass your coil over them they let you know.
So far every one of the gold targets in those pics came in super solid for me from more than one direction...even in trash or iron infested sites and in both very good and very bad dirt.
If people want to dig a ton more looking for gold that's fine, for me it just wasn't working anymore so I changed and still manage to find the yellow stuff here and there.

Anything that ID's in the same range will High Tone!
Tabs,
Certain gold rings,
and of course nickels.
The problem with nickles is they land in a MAJOR TRASH range!
