Tesoro Compadre Metal Detector
with 5.75" Concentric Search Coil and Lifetime Warranty Plus FREE Metal Detector Shipping
The Tesoro Compadre was designed with the idea that less is more. This modest machine can do a lot of the same things that its bigger brothers can do. It works great for coin hunting, competition hunting and relic hunting, but it does it without any excess knobs. Switch on the detector and you’re working in a silent search, motion all metal mode. The farther you turn the knob, the more discrimination you can bring to bear on those trashy sites. The Compadre with 5.75" round concentric coil reduces the likelihood of target masking in extremely trashy ground and gives good target separation. It also gives you the ability to get into and around natural obstacles like bushes, fences, and playground equipment.

Great Little Detector
Review by Michael on November 07, 2016
Not much one can say about a simplistic VLF single tone detector other than this one works, and works well. I bought this to be my daughter's first detector for simplicity and a single toner so she is not confused or try to learn too much getting started. She can find most anything I can and I have even went behind her to check her tone and it is spot on for finding most anything you can with a $2500 CTX! Plus the Tesoro has a lifetime warranty! Folks, if you are just starting out or need a simple machine for a child then you cannot go wrong. They look like toys I admit but it really is a top notch machine!
My Compadre All the Way
Review by Trapper D on March 10, 2015
I have a Compadre that I have been using for a month now. It is really dependable. When it beeps there is some type of metal under the coil. The depth is great for the price. I like the different tones it gives too. Tesoro metal detectors are the best!
When All Fails
Review by Frank L on February 02, 2015
Easy and light detector. I always take it with me when I go detecting, I have a much larger unit from the same company that I use but always find myself toward the end of the day going to the Compadre. You will find that after you swing a heavier machine all day that the Compadre is a God send. Now lighter and smaller is a good thing, also swing it slow and easy, cover a lot of ground closer together swings and get ready to be surprised. Don't be fooled by air test, you're gonna hit nice and deep targets, don't worry about small iron and tin foil unless you want to dig everything, I dig it all don't want to miss anything, if you only have a day or short time to detect crank up the discrimination, get the coins and go. Machine will work you down, buy it , have fun, you will like it. See ya in the field.
Excellent Unit, Superb Detector for the Money
Review by Jeff M on February 24, 2014
Sometimes there really is a best buy for the money. A real deal so to speak. The Compadre is a shining example of that. It's very easy to use and will hold it's own against much more expensive detectors. The machine is a beep and dig unit with a great discriminator circuit. The user can easily find then pinpoint the target, gauge the depth, and in some cases get a good idea what it might be before even digging. All this simply by leaning the way the Compadre sounds.
A Step Ahead of the Rest
Review by Steven J on November 04, 2013
I've being detecting for a number of years now, and needed an in town get up and go detector. Parks, schools, tot lots - the Compadre is the answer with a frequency higher than most beginner models. It's fast, long on battery life, is light enough for children and the older crowd. Swing all day. Great coin shooter. Keep hitting on an area, which is newer and been hunted by others, and I'Il keep pulling coins out, it's like having a coin maker with you. I've found different types of rings, toy cars, tokens, coins and my share of pull tabs etc. You can go all metal or discriminate and cherry pick . Bottom line, it's a great starter machine and when you move up to a higher end model, you have the perfect back up machine.
