How Do You Supper Tune The Tejon

Isn't it a case of putting it in all metal,cranking the threshold all the way up and then switching back into discrim?If you do this you have to be careful in pinpoint mode because it can hurt your ears when pinpointing a target.Try it in an air test to see if it makes a difference.I supertuned a c scope mx3 once but that mean't gaining access to the sensitivity pot and rotating it internally to get the desired result.Didn't make much difference to be honest as i couldn't really use the extra power because it made the machine too unstable.

You simply turn the threshold all the way up. It makes a big difference on my Laser Trident SE (almost the same as the Vaquero).You gain depth but you lose depth perception, shallow and deep targets sound the same. To me, it seems like all it does for the Tejon is make it even more "sparky".

I don't think you do. Just find a deep target that gives a faint signal, then adjust the ground balance a quarter turn counter clock wise. it should give you more depth. That is according to "mastering the tejon and vaquero".

That is only questionable advice and not complete. Many people do not understand Ground Balance and is why so many detectors have, and users rely on, an automated GB using the Ground Grab function. The Tejóm is only manual GB so the first step, before suggesting any change in the GB setting, is to make sure you have a proper Ground balanced in the threshold-based All Metal mode. THEN you might consider a very slight adjustment from that setting point. If the Tejón has a GB that is not proper and you simply change the setting by ¼ to ½ turn counterclockwise, it might end up being too negative and that can lead to falsing and poor performance.

Otherwise the suggestion is good and that is to set the controls for your general search and when you find a weaker-sounding and deeper target, THEN you can check out settings such as GB or 'super tuning' to see if anything enhances the target response. Do that before any attempt to uncover the target.

Where I live the ground balance is in the upper 80's and FeO2 meter is usually over half way up on all my detectors that have one. If I turn my GB down a quarter turn, the Tejon is very noisy and unpleasant. If I hear a deep target with a faint signal on the Tejon, I start drooling and digging instead of "adjusting for more depth".

Supertune from what I remember was simply turning the sensitivity knob past max into the red zone marked around the dial. You could do this in disc mode as well but you get alot of chirping when cranked that high

No, 'Super-Tuning', which I started and called it "Hyper-Tune', was increasing the Threshold control in the silent-search Disc. mode.

As for the Sensitivity control, Tesoro referred to that added 'orange' zone as Max-Boost. Also, on most Tesoro models, the All Metal mode had a fixed Sensitivity at full or maximum and the variable Sensitivity control only functioned with the motion-based Disc. mode.

I stand corrected i thought I remembered moving that sensitivity knob into the ref something now that you mention it yes max boost. I was thinking super tune for some reason
