disappointed I now march to my own brand

Wowzer what a rough ride! Was in conversation with Garrett as to replacement headphones for my AT Pro International. Well sir they (Beverly at Garrett) stated that Garrett had never produced a one pin plug for the Pro....um!

That is where this bouy whether it being dumb as a cod or that I speak Nova Scotian was lost in translation.

So after a tad I emailed her the above photos. Beverly responded almost immediately....no dust gathering there. Apparently one pin out (thanks to Canadian Treasure Seekers who were prompt and nonjudgemental in this pickle) and one female plug in the connection constitutes a two pin plug.....Lord love a duck! So the two pins on your coil connector is really a 4 pin. Needless to say my Hunny Bunny before all this started informed me that it was a two pin connector. Women....never wrong and won't go detecting.

As for the hat issue

Garrett sent me a photo of three hats and the price. So much for over 45 years customer loyalty. Not too mention I own 7 of their machines.

Hope this post clarifies the issue for us Garrett swingers .

Today was a new day so now I march to my own brand...well at least 30 bottles of it!

30 bottles x; now your posts are starting to make sense :D

I’m suprised you had so much trouble, have always heard great things about Garretts customer service. Also surprised the they did not throw you a free hat as you are a regular poster both here and on finds treasure and it looks like your old one has done its job (and so have you)of advertising their products for many a year.

The beverage is a light sweet red wine. Noble Grape is the local do it yourself place. Hope it lasts long enough to age.....like me!

Have a bottle if you are ever this way and take care.
