Impressive
A friend of mine recommended it. I didn't know it was Turkish, but it did the job, was great at the beach, I am now experimenting with it in the Israeli forests near historic sites etc.... Great detector for the money....

Most helpful review for Tesoro Golden uMax

Give it time, and it is a winner.
I've owned three Goldens, and regret it each time I sell one. The bottom line with this machine is that you need to give it time. Tesoro says it has four tones, which is somewhat true... It really has many many more. It has it's own language that you will learn over time.

Solid targets have solid tones. For example -- I found that gold rings and targets similar in composition have somewhat of an ascending tone. But if it is a pulltab, it would be a descending tone on the backswing.

I've taken my golden on the beach alongside my buddy who had his Minelab Excalibur, and it kept right up with him. Why? Is it as deep as an excalibur? I'd say no. But, when you understand what the Golden is telling you, you'll dig plenty.

The notch setting takes some getting used to as well, and you'll need to practice with it for a while. With the narrow notch setting, I hunted a field that was used for rock concerts. It was littered in tabs and crushed pieces of aluminum. I dug three pulltabs that day, and lots of nickels.

Give this one some time, and you will see it's a keeper...
