Multi Kruzer discrimination settings

Post by edge1255 » Mon Sep 03, 2018 2:53 pm

Been doing a bit of research on my kruzer. While detecting yesterday I noticed that iron was being detected between 00 and 15, dependent on size, and foil was being detected between 17 and 25, or there abouts, again dependent of size. On returning home, I tried a variety of in-air tests with coins, rings, chains etc. The lowest reading I got with a 9ct ring was 34/35, silver was in the 70s/80s, and coins varied from 38 to 86. Nothing that I would class as valuable got under 34. Has anyone found anything that would be classed as valuable that has a reading of under 30? I was in the basic three tone with factory settings. I was just thinking that if I set discrimination to 30, and have everything below that silent, and dig everything else that bleeps, what could I miss? Just for clarification, I dug all signals yesterday and the kruzer was spot on with its identification of iron and foil. :-/

hi.
STOP.
Dont go out with disc set at 30.
keep at factory setting, the more disc means more depth loss
but most importantly you will miss loads of good bits
i got a tudor gold ring saturday at 30/32
many roman coppers come in at 15 to 20
on most machines you will want to dig the foil targets. i know its a pain to dig crap but every 50 bits of foil will be a good find in there.
cut halfs and quarters can be very low
the bottom line is your brain is the descrimination, learn what to dig or not from tone and number stability, let the detector find everything
air tests are not the same as normal running
turn the iron tone to 0. i run on 1.
if you are detecting a modern park or in an american park it would be ok to lose the rubbish.
field detecting in uk many good targets will be same a a mr kipling tray left by a tractor driver.
good luck

Thanks Nige, I wasn't sure what was 'down in the cellar' of the descrimination settings. I've never been lucky enough to find anything roman up here in Lanarkshire, despite there being a pretty good occupation by them. My earliest finds are all around about the early 1800's. The shortage of roman currency is making me suspect that instead of being paid in cash, they were all using paypal! =))

I found a hammered silver coin with an id between 10 and 15. The thinner the coin the lower the id. It also depends on ground conditions. Gold has also very low values.

Iron is sometimes in the high 90s.

Don't set the discrimination too high, better use tone break, or you loose depth.

Here are my favourite settings for 3 tone:

14 kHz
3 tone
Gain 94
Disc 3
Notch 4
Fe Vol N3
TBreak 5 70
Tone 15 50 70
iSat 0

You see, disc (3), notch (4) and tone break for iron (5) are very low. If I'm hearing a good signal I look first for the id and then decide to dig or not, otherwise I would miss some iffy signals, which may be good finds.

I run disc 3 notch 4, i dig more holes and get more crap but I've had some good finds in the low numbers. It's a case of learning how the machine reads the particular land you are on. I use frequency and gain changes and am learning how it affects the way the machine interprets the signals. The multi kruzer is definitely not a plug and play machine but the more you use it and explore its settings it will find a lot of good stuff if it's there.

the wife has a very thin 9 ct gold chain that comes it at 14 on the multi personaly i wouldnt set above 13. also if you detect the beaches the factory preset is 15 so i would lower this to 13.

Many thanks for the settings guys...you will never know just what it means to an old guy who truly enjoys detecting...but has problems understanding modern technology.
You all are a god bunch of folks..... THANK YOU...?good hunting ::g

Hello digger112, I see this is your first post but It would be really helpful to indicate which of the above posts you are addressing your response to as it is not at all clear.

Just a short sentence will do the trick. ::g Regards ss47

Global settings for any field. Can be used anywhere with any program - that's at least simple.
As you nobody wants irons. I forgot to add - Fe Volume set to 0.
So with Disc 4, Notch 5 and Fe Vol 0, you should not hear Fe at all, or at least will be reduced to minimum. I use it that way, no many holes with iron digged. ::g
