White's Spectra Series VX3

with Eclipse (950) 9.5" Concentric Search Coil
Coinmaster Simplicity - Spectra Performance

The Spectra Series is a result of years of research and development, time-proven manufacturing and testing techniques, and most of all...listening to our customers.
The Spectra VX3 represents the state-of-the-art in metal detecting technology. Three frequencies, color display, advanced features, and the ability to use wireless headphones produce a powerful and capable detector. VX3 has preset programs developed and refined by experts, leaving you ready to find what others have left behind.

The heart of VX3 is a high-perfomance ARM-9 RISC microprocessor which simultaneously analyzes signals from 3 transmitted frequencies. Those frequencies - 2.5kHz, 7.5kHz, and 22.5kHz were chosen for their diverse responses to a variety of metal targets, resulting in a superior system of target analysis and identification.

The face of VX3 is a stunning 320x240 color display with an easy-to-use menu-driven interface. Along with three frequencies, there are three search modes and a three-level Spectra Graph display which provides detailed target information for each frequency. With a level of simplicity for the novice user and advanced features to satisfy the experienced user, VX3 is a metal detector for everyone.

Spectra VX3 Finds
VX3 Find Review

The VX3 is able to detect even tiny gold and silver at impressive depths. On my first two times out, I found this nice gold ring, earrings and heavy silver ring. Im a believer. -Bob C.

VX3 Find Review

I took the VX3 to a newer local park on it's maiden voyage. This park has lots of bottlecaps and D rings. I noticed how stable it ran and how well it locked onto good targets while avoiding trash. The VX3 locked onto coins with ease. Using the Coin & Jewelry program, I pulled this 1924-s mercury dime and a teen wheat cent at 7 inches. I found the VX3 to be a easy to use detector with very accurate I.D. and excellent depth. -Ray R.
