Teknetics Gamma 6000 Metal Detector
The Teknetics Gamma 6000 Metal Detector features a large, crystal clear and easy to read, identification meter. This new design enables even the novice of detectorists to see the treasures they've found before they begin to dig!
The Gamma 6000 metal detector is one of the latest and greatest from the world-renowned Teknetics metal detector brand. Released at the end of 2008, just in time for the holiday season, the Gamma 6000 boasts state-of-the-art detecting features housed in the most modern of detector designs.
The large control housing features rubber-button control interface, numerical depth readout, an intuitive menu system and a running depth indicator. Two-Digit Numerical Target ID System makes identifying buried target fast and easy! With the Gamma 6000 accuracy is improved on all targets and even those older and deeper coins. These tools combine to help even the most novice detectorist hunt like a professional!
A step above its brother, the Teknetics Delta 4000, the Gamma 6000 has more user-adjustable features. Manual Ground Balancing will allow you to selectively tune out those pesky minerals that give false signals while 79 levels of Adjustable Target Discrimination will keep those pull tabs out of your finds collection while increasing your number of gold rings!
The Gamma 6000 also has six “Multiple Notches,” selectable by categories, so you’ll be able to select pre-programmed discrimination settings and spend your time digging treasure – not programming your metal detector!
Another advanced feature on the Gamma 6000 is the “Ground Mineralization Readout” which will describe what you’re encountering in the ground. This is extremely helpful as you ground balance your machine in various terrain. Wet, salty beach sand, and highly mineralized black sand are two common conditions that will highly benefit from this feature.
Additional features include adjustable sensitivity, a two-digit numerical target identification system, and two search modes: Discrimination Mode and All Metals Mode.
The Gamma 6000 transmits a low frequency of 7.8kHz to alert you to literally every type of treasure buried beneath the surface. A running depth indicator will show you how deeply buried treasure lies in three different levels detected before you pinpoint, while the audio pitch will change in proportion to the strength of the target’s signal (which means the louder a target, the closer it is).
All those features combine with the bonus of fully static, push-button pinpointing capability that will accomplish three things at one time. First: when in the pinpoint mode the detector will automatically center the target. Second: It will increase the audio tone when you are over the target. Third: the Gamma 6000 will indicate the depth from 0 to over 9 inches.
The Gamma 6000 Ground Grab feature allows the user to more precisely calibrate the detector’s internal circuitry to the specific ground you are searching. Ground Grab is a fast an easy and effective way to ground balance over most soils.
Only one 9 Volt battery is required to operate this new, impressive and affordable machine and it won’t just die on you in the field – it features a battery life indicator to make sure you’re prepared to treasure hunt for hours on end!

Review by Erin V on March 25, 2016Being a beginner, I found the detector easy to ground balance, which is the hardest thing to figure out. Even the manual ground balance was fairly easy to learn. I would recommend this item for novice and professional use. Personally, I'm looking for gold and meteorites and think it will work for both.
Review by Todd L on February 24, 2014I have been detecting off and on for thirty years and I bought this detector. For the money I don't think you can buy a better all around detector. This detector is super light weight, runs all day on a single 9 volt battery, has discrimination and notch discrimination, manual ground balance or ground grab auto ground balance, volume control, all metal mode, pinpoint, large screen readout, depth of object readout when pinpointing, sensitivity adjustment and two headphone jacks. This detector has a little trouble on small gold, won't pick up an earring post, gold has to be bigger than a small pendent for any depth, Works great at the beach, just balance and go. I ran into an area with a lot of very small foil and notched it out but still picked up a quarter. In soaking wet sand it falses a little so I moved over about a foot and it was fine, One great thing is it runs silent until you get something, no annoying hum all day... also has 4 hi low pitch signals which tells treasure from trash. It can be a little noisy in trash areas but my DD coil picks all that up, so I move slower, haven't tried a small coil yet. What I don't like is its not waterproof, and the power button is too close to the pinpointer button, when wearing gloves you turn off the machine a lot so I check it after a dig, then go. I was looking at some other detectors but this one is easy and has very good features with good depth. Go have fun is the name of the game, GOOD HUNTING
Review by Stan M on May 28, 2010I am new to detecting but I was fortunate to have had the chance to use a few detectors of varying brands before deciding on the Teknetics Gamma. I was leery at first because there were absolutely no reviews out there to help me decide, I’m glad I did. I like this detector for several reasons.
1. The 99 levels of discrimination? Target ID. Besides the depth and ID scale, you have a numerical value also. So when the detector tells me I’m on a nickel if the ID number is 57 it’s definitely a nickel! Sometimes I dig anyway just to learn what the number is.
2. Ground balancing!! I do this as soon as I hit the site. I've used a competitor’s 250 and man was that thing noisy!! GB helps the machine "see" what’s there without all the noise.
3. The screen. Man, that thing is HUGE! It is much bigger than I thought it would be, and the readout is so easy to see. I'm not squinting to see some little indicator.
4. Extremely light. At just over 2 lbs, this thing is a feather!
5. Pin-pointing. The volume swell over the target is helpful, rarely do I have to dig anywhere but under the center coil.
6. 4 tones. I started on a machine with no other indicators other than tone, no depth, no ID. It’s nice to have tone ID as well.
7. VOLUME CONTROL!!!! Try listening to that beeping/dinging all day long at FULL VOLUME!!
8. 2 types of headphone sockets. One less adapter to carry around or loose!
Overall, I could have gone with a cheaper machine but I’m glad I spent the extra bucks. I've found gold, I've found nickels with ease, and I’ve also found a lot of pull tabs(darn things!!) but for the extra features like big screen, 99 ID disc., weight, and others, go for the Caddy Baby!! I would definitely recommend!!
Review by Stan on May 6, 2010I'm new to detecting but I like the Gamma I bought. I got started when my friend let me tag along and use his old Garret Coinmaster 300. I wasn’t hooked but I enjoyed it. I then got to use his Garret Ace 250 and while it’s a nice machine it wasn’t for me. It was too noisy and I couldn’t get very good readings. Yes, I adjusted the sensitivity.
While looking for my own machine, I happened across the Teknetics 6000. It had the features I was looking for, especially the 99 levels of ID and discrimination, but the ground grab has proven extremely useful too! I have only had the Gamma for 3 days now and I love it. I found my first gold ring with it today!! This detector is very light and the screen is HUGE! It is much bigger than I thought, 4.5" diagonally. It is also very easy to read and understand. The four tones are very helpful since that is what I got used to with my friends Garrett Coinmaster 300. I don’t have one target of choice as I will hunt anything but when things get trashy it is super easy to set the discrimination, and you can choose what you want to leave out in varying degrees thanks to the 99 levels, which also come in handy for identifying your target!! There are still some mixed signals, like the darn pull tabs, but that’s just par for the course, and at least it’s minimal. All in all this is a very like-able machine. It’s light, easy to use, and easy to understand. I know it’s expensive but if you can spring for it its definitely worth it!
Review by Robert Y on April 2, 2010I actually found it easy to ground balance this unit. What do you think about that?
Review by Wilson on November 22, 2009This is an unbelievable machine. The first time out I found a silver hammered of Edward the 1st.

Q: What is the shaft made out of if it's plastic is it wiggly or firmA:
The shaft is mad of a light weight metal and is a firm and steady shaft.
