Credo ddm

Post by Credo » Mon Aug 11, 2014 4:32 pm

Havent had my Nexus long,just getting to grips with it.First impressions are really good.I was surprised at how stable it runs ,even with sensitivity set high.Hot rocks are easily ground balanced out,even the coke is easily discrimmed out aswell.Quite confident if I hit bad ground the machine will cope.Are there any other users out there?If so how are you finding it? ::g

Hello mrix,only used the machine a few times so its early days yet.First time on pasture which has been well detected on for the last 10 years or so.Best find that day at a measured 10 inches was a pilgrims ampulla.The signal banged out and I thought it was something in the top few inches or so!Dont even think I had the machine set at its best as I was tinkering with different settings as you do.Discrim seems really good,being able to knock out coke,although don't know yet if that will affect hitting the hammies in the ground.Will let you know on that one.What I will say is the build quality is excellent and the machine is quite light compared to some I have had.One thing I would have liked on it is an arm strap for when you use it in stubble,just a minor point I think.Anyway I should be out this weekend,hopefully I can report on it a bit more but first impressions are good ::g

Now that you have had the detector a couple of months can you give an update regarding your user experience with it? Would be much appreciated.

Hi Filternozzle,

I have a different model, the MKII since April
passes almost everywhere
the choice of the coil is important according to hunting, preferred low frequencies (Dual eight)
(also good on gold as high frequencies on other brands !!)

two defects
-the absence strap on the armrest
I have made a lot better now, especially with the 9-inch
-very big consomation batteries, the rechargeable kit essential
on my own, I use an external battery ... (voltage more important in mkII coils)

+ On the beach, passes properly in the wet, but I prefer my PI ....
+ Ground balance, very easy by pumping, do not hesitate to readjust regularly for hunting

these last months, 2 great finds on hunts already made
a bronze ax and a gold stater
(no better image to stater, I'm in France ...)

In short, a good machine, especially for deep hunting
Unlike a lot of machine, it gives a very clear sound on gold
even deep stater 30/40 cm no problem with a very clear sound ..

I plan to order a special coil nexus a 12-inch, eight dual , to win on coins isolated
the 20-inch catalog seems difficult to use me ...

r;[ r;[ if you have the opportunity to try one, I would like to compare a review to Nautilus B-)

Hi LE.JAG
Many thanks for your update. I will be giving the Credo DDM a try in the very near future. My question is, with regard to both depth and discrimination, is there much of a difference between the Credo DDM and the Standard Mk II? Also, with regard to low conductors like small thin hammered silver coins what is considered to be the choice coil size and frequency?

Hi Filternozzle,

I can not tell the difference between credo and MKII
never tried credo .......
by Nexus, the MkII shipments stronger voltage in the coil
which gives it more power / sensibility
and also stronger battery consumption .....

Nexus believes it is 18kHz coils for nugget hunting
dry land and dry sand only

I finally opted for two dual coils
9 inches 6.5 khz / 6 inches, 5.4 khz

most useful in turf is the Dual 9
it gives an amazing depth quarter stater (1/2 gr) with clear sound !!

or if you are looking for the deep
a 12-inch special order

Gary had tested this big coil (12p) on the old SE
a depth greater than PI ........

I would not say they are the best :D many that I have not tried !!
but they are "really" deep Machine ;)

Hi LE.JAG,
Thanks for all the information you have given, something for me to think about! You seem to be getting on well with the Standard Mk II.

Is there anyone using the Credo DDM who can offer user experience? As the price difference between the Standard Mk II and the Credo DDM is very large the two machines must be quite difference in performance. I am trying to understand just how much of a difference.

I now have my own Credo DDM and will be out with it this Sunday, looking forward to a good days detecting. With a little luck I'll pass the coil over a decent target or two, so fingers crossed. I am giving the Nautilus a rest and am pretty sure the DDM will step up to the mark.

Cold and very windy but I did stay out all day. Lady Luck was not with me, I had the normal pre-decimal and Georgian copper including a cartwheel penny, also a spindle whorl but as I said Lady Luck was not with me and whorl is pretty plain.
The DDM has a nice feel about it and I almost felt I let it down by not passing the coil over something more interesting. It has a very fast recovery and when working in a small area full of bits of iron which had already had a number detectorists over it before me (A DS Dig). The DDM pulled out 3 coins and a button so I was well pleased.
I'm looking forward to my next outing and hopefully some interesting finds.

Hi Le Jag,

I only have the 10"DD but I think the small 7"DD might be a good addition.
I was out with it again today and managed a hammered coin (not sure what it is at the moment). I will take a photo and post it. Also found a nice spindle whorl but not much else.

really fancy one of these, but cant find much on the net, real world tests ect
a lot of my sites have deep hammered 10 to 12in deep! the fields are direct drilled and never ploughed, so would a nexus offer me any depth advantage over my ctx on fairly clean soil ?
and how would the nexus handle the mass of small iron on my settlement sites?
any help/ comments would be appreciated ;)

Hi Steve,
Nexus provides the audio quality to be very often at all metals
the recognition of small iron is not a problem
at Depth equal, I prefer a nexus to another machine for audio
but it is an opinion personel ...

the important thing is to choose the right coil, according to the terrain
as you go a little deeper, you hear more of waste...

Hi Filternozzle,
according nexus, Dual, are better than DD
more sensitive to equal size
6 '8.5 kHz would not be bad

I had that Duals on my Nexus (coro and MKII)
they do not give the concentric coil sensation
like other vlf
and are really deep ...

Hi LE JAG,
I agree with you, the classic dual (figure 8) coils are better. However, the only coils available for the Credo DDM are DD coils.

I was using my Credo DDM on Sunday and found initially I wasn't getting a lot of colour to my signals. They seemed to be very loud no matter what the depth. I like to get as much audio information as possible.

I turned the DDM off and started over again. Sensitivity at 12, Multitone Off, Left the GB control at the setting I had, Discrimination at 10 and Threshold right down. Adjusted my phones to maximum on each cup.

Checked the Mode switch was in the All Metal position and turned on, raised the volume control to the position of approximately 8 (all numbers relate to the clock face), raised Threshold until a very faint but distinct threshold could be heard.

Place a large coin on the ground and lifted the coil high and swept whilst lowering the coil. This enabled me to hear the coin at a distance all the way down to a couple of inches. I made a very slight adjustment to the Volume control. It was now set up to give a loud sound (but not deafening) when the target was close to the coin and going quieter the further the coil move away.

There are different ways of achieving the same result but I felt this worked very well.
