Classic instruments use what is known as a two-filter electronic circuit which allows for very quick response time between targets. The results: great performance in trash areas and excellent detection depth in light to medium soil types. In fact, in certain types of ground conditions, the Classics may exceed the detection depths of some of the more sophisticated four filter models.
