Teknetics alpha -great little detector

February 08, 2019
I bought a TEKNETICS ALPHA used with 8 inch coil, just wanted a light weight detector to carry around in van, and go detecting when a good spot came up.

First I was shocked at how light it was, the 2.2lbs felt like air. Super large screen, the block ID was just as accurate as my Whites MX5. Super fast recover between targets, only about 1 inch less depth than my MX5. Found split shots at 5 inches, Quarters at 9 inches. I used on wet salt sand had to turn sensitivity down to 6 and notch out iron, worked great. Does not have pinpoint but it is so fast just X target. I have been detecting since 1968, I am very impressed with the ALPHA. I plan on checking out other TEKNETICS detectors.

No flies on the alpha

If you bought a Alpha you are not lacking in power,would be nice if it had 1-99 I.D Number 's but it is still great. I own its bigger brother the Gamma 6000 and it is a versital machine, but in my mild soil the Alpha 2000 will hang with it or most other machines, add the 1-99 Number 's and it would be perfect for the $$$.

As secondary

Ground balance is set really low on these machines. But it is good enough to be my secondary detector...

Pretty good

On par with the F2, Coinmaster, and Ace 250. I have used them all. It will go deep enough. No problems noticed at max sensitivity. A bit jumpy on certain targets but the same goes for the other detectors mentioned. It is very light weight and fun to use.

Teknetics Alpha review

February 23, 2012
Took the Alpha to an old ball field for a few hours. The site was on a slope were the old bleachers had been tore down. Iron was everywhere. Important to note, that is why I chose to run the discrimination wide open. If the detector can id iron then there is less chance of masking or iron sounding like a good target.

The detector ran very smooth at full sensitivity with no chatter. I tested the EMI issue under power lines and the field light transformers and no problems at all. Honestly I was very surprised. Early on the Alpha had problems with EMI. But Teknetics fixed this with heavier coil cable. The "56" nickle I doug was actualy showing 5c on the display. 4-5 inches down in the red clay here. I was spot on with the pinpointing also. As I am use to Tesoro's I just X'ed the spot. Although nothing earth shattering was found by me I feel this detector is worth more than it's price. No ron, none no nails or can slaw. And trust me it was everywhere. It likes pulltabs. That is a good thing to me because it will like gold too.

The dime I found was proof that leaving the disc. open helps find good things in iron. I got the low tone before and after the small high tone. I thought I better slow down my swing and listen. Sure enough I could here a hight tone between the two low tones. So I dug and out popped a clad dime. Now I'm impressed. Depth is not an issue either. The last target I dug was a memorial at 7" next to the side walk. Are their any bad things with this detector? Not realy, for 200.00 it can't be beat IMHO. The stock 8" coil is ok but I am getting a 5x10 DD to realy enhance this detector. HH
