Tesoro Compadre Metal Detector


The Tesoro Compadre was designed with the idea that less is more. This modest
machine can do a lot of the same things that its bigger brothers can do. It
works great for coin hunting, competition hunting and relic hunting, but it does
it without any excess knobs. Switch on the detector and you're working in a
silent search, motion all metal mode. The farther you turn the knob, the more
discrimination you can bring to bear on those trashy sites. The Compadre now
comes standard with a 5.75" round concentric coil, which also gives you the
ability to get into and around natural obstacles like bushes, fences, and
playground equipment. The Compadre is now available with an 8" round concentric
coil. This coil will give you a slightly larger search area and better depth on
larger targets.

The Compadre has it all. One knob simplicity for the beginner and high gain
circuitry and the famous Tesoro ED-180 discrimination for the advanced user. If
one detector can do all of this, maybe less is more.
