MY MUSKETEER UPDATE.
October 09, 2008
Hi all,just to let you know what a great detector this is, I have found a
nice silver Edward 1st dated around 1279 about 10ins down. Fantastic. You
don't need to spend loads of money on a detector to find what your looking
for. If your detector goes deep like the musketeer you will find it. Great

I've only been metal detecting for only 4 months and so far with his
detector I have found, 600 year old ring, 1 Roman brooch(bow brooch)very
nice, 13century finger brooch, silver coins dating back from 1580, over 100
copper coins dating back from 1600, 4 mine tokens dates 1789 to 1799,
musket balls and loads more stuff.
What does that tell you about this detector, fantastic.
Advantage, by all means!

I bought this detector from ebay u.k. secondhand for 195 pounds sterling.
It paid for itself in 15 days! Total score since I bought it two months ago
beachcombing mostly wet salt sandy beaches with 7" coil: 456 cash Euros in
coins, 626 undercurrent (older)coins, 26 silver jewellry, 16 gold jewellry,
at amazing depths! 2 cent Euro coins at 11" down! Woman's slim golden ring
with diamond at 13 down! Man's silver ring 16" down! Inland medieval small
bronze various items 12" - 15" down! WWII Italian unexploded 75mm
(3")howitzer at 65cm (26")down still with the 7" coil!
Oh yes! This detector proved equal or superior to my old Tesoro Eldorado.
Drawbacks? It seems rather to be a aluminium foil loving machine! But as
with most discriminating detectors, just an advice folks:Keep
discrimination low and anyway and in any case no more than 1/3 up.If you do
not dig up a little bit of junk you will not dig anything else either!

Not a bad machine, not great either, it is firmly ensconced somewhere in
between. My experience with using this machine is that it seems to love
picking up iron; a bit too much. Also it is heavy and rather basic, but
then what are you to expect for the price? On the flip side, yes it does
go down just as deep as most other detectors and I have made some decent
finds with it. The search head is also a decent size, and the control box
is easy to master, and unlike earlier versions of this machine there is now
an option to mount the control box under the foam arm rest, this is far
more conducive to counter balance the machine. In short, if you are
looking for a solid entry level machine that isn't going to break the bank
then I suspect you could do far worse than this.

Brilliant machine ,this must be the biggest secret in metal detecting,
depth is right up there with the top end machines costing loads more,ease
of use simple,ground balance a doddle,and the 10 inch is a killer,what a
machine for the price,and you wont dig iron with a minelab,sensitivty of
this machine is fantastic,in a word stunning.

Minelab Musketeer Advantage

This machine when learned and you can learn it quick, will impress the best
of us, descrim, is right on target location is quick and very accurate, low
cost and high performance, go get one and save, what you would have spent
on a high end machine that will do no more than this one on depth and
descrimination. Simply put , this one smokes.
Advantage is the best

After owning fisher's c-scopes and numerous other detectors,I bought a
minelab musky advantage from ebay & without a doubt this detector as become
the best iv'e had to date!!.
Awesome depth,fast recovery,& very good discrimination I would recommend
one of these machines to anyone.I have had more decent finds with my musky
than any other detector that I have owned!.ideal for beginer's or pro's
Go out & get one of these machine's you won't regret it!!!.
Deep and cheap

Let me start by saying I am a bit disappointed in the building quality of
this machine. De bolt that locks the two parts of the stem together broke
second time out and the battery compartment needs a piece of paper with the
batteries or they won't connect.
Now the good news: this is an extremely deep machine. I used it on several
trampled Roman sites that are ploughed every year. This winter I took it to
a site where a Celtic temple was discovered several years ago. All other
detectorists had already moved on to their next sites, so I guess you can
say it was a hammered site. Still: I managed to find about 20 pieces of
lead, cupper and whatnought in about 2 hours. Nothing valuable, but every
one of these items could have been a roman/celtic brooch or coin. Now thats
what I call a good machine.
Next, I took it to a site where some spoil from an medieval citycentre was
being ploughed into the ground. I first took my two tesoros and didnt find
much. I then took out the advantage and found several items, including a
medieval silver ring. Mind you, this site was about 15 x 60 meters, so, a
very small site.
I really enjoy this machine. And: the price is allmost ridiculous. Buy one
