Tesoro Tejon Metal Detector
with 9x8" Carbon Fiber Search Coil and Lifetime Warranty.

We are very proud to introduce the Tejón. It features a high output transmit oscillator to push the signal deeper and an increased gain for sensitivity to smaller items. The Tejón was designed from the ground up with the coin and relic hunter in mind. It also features a new color scheme from Tesoro- blue, gray and black. The Tejón was over a year and a half in the design stages and represents a new generation of Tesoro detectors.

Once you get past the new color scheme, the first thing that you will notice is the lack of a mode switch on the faceplate. We have moved it beneath the control housing so that you are able to switch modes quickly. Pinpointing and checking your targets with the Alternate Discrimination is a breeze.

The Tejón’s two discriminate modes are fully user definable. The engineers at Tesoro have given the user the ability to set the machine for their hunting needs. Each discriminate mode uses ED180 circuitry. The regular discriminate also incorporates a full-time all metal setting. Want to hunt in all metal and check the targets for iron or discriminate out iron and perform a check for high value silver or gold targets? It’s no problem for the Tejón. Simply set the Discriminate and Alternate Discriminate modes for your style of hunting and swing the coil. Then use the Trigger Switch to quickly change modes to check your targets. Push the trigger forward to activate the Alternate Discriminate or pull the trigger back to pinpoint the target. The Tejón makes it fast and easy.

But the user definable features do not stop there. The Tejón has a manually adjustable ground balance that works for both the All Metal mode and both Discriminate modes. Using a three and three quarter potentiometer, the Tejón will meet and defeat all soil conditions and is suitable for any hunting style.

The Tejón also has an audio tone adjust. If you have trouble hearing certain tones or have certain tones that you are more comfortable with, the Tejón can meet you desires. Using the tone adjustment control, you can switch from a normal tone with VCO pinpoint/all metal to any one of thousands of different audio tones for the All Metal and Discriminate modes. Fine tune the tone until it is right for you and see how much easier it is to find, pinpoint and dig the targets that you are looking for.

The Tejon is an awesome detector! I've owned 4 different detectors and the Tejon is by far the best I've used! The dual discrimination allows you infinite set ups, adjustable ground balance for tough conditions and great discrimination at amazing depths! It's designed for Relics, but I find it's a coin monster! Easily picks out coins surrounded by nails better than anything I've used! I love the 5.75" widescan H.O.T. coil Tesoro makes! Hits hard on Nickels at 7-8 inches in my soil and really ups the finds in trashy areas! For Simplicity, Flexibility, Reliability, and Raw Power, there's nothing better in my opinion! Highly recommended!

After using the Tesoro Silver uMax as my first detector, then the Golden uMax as my second detector, the Tejon was pretty easy to understand and use. This is the "Cadillac" of Tesoro's in my opinion, and does very well for shooting coins and small jewelry. I am just getting into relic hunting so I plan to put a slightly larger coil on this machine to take advantage of the depth ability that this baby can get. This is one machine that I will never sell, as I have found more with it than any of the other detectors I have owned and put together. It is lightweight, and a pleasure to use... I definitely recommend this detector to anyone serious about going deep... as well as anyone who is not able to swing a big heavy machine... it has it all!
