Garrett AT Gold Metal Detector with Waterproof 5" x 8" DD Search Coil
The AT Gold metal detector was designed with gold hunters in mind. This machine is fully submersible up to 10ft and is equipped with a 5" x 8" search coil so you can even look for the tiniest nuggets along the surf. If you want to pan for gold in the mountains and run your coil through a small stream or you are taking a beach vacation and want to search for lost jewelry, this metal detector from Garrett is the perfect machine. This gold detector also comes with the Garrett wired MS-2 headphones. These headphones are not waterproof and a pair of Garrett submersible headphones are required to go fully underwater and dive in the shallows of a lake.
The AT Gold is optimized for gold with a high operating frequency, but also has the flexibility of a True All Metal Mode. The All Metal Mode provides the greatest possible depth and sensitivity so you don't miss anything in the water or on land. This detector also has two discrimination modes with a Zero Discrimination setting and a U.S. coin setting. The Garrett AT Gold features Tone Roll Audio so you can listen to the signal even more clearly as it modifies and changes the audio characteristic to help identify what kind of iron you are targeting. There are also two customizable notch selections which are set up in Zero Discrimination Mode and U.S. Coin Mode so you can start hunting straight away.
- DISC 1: Zero Discrimination Mode (All metal)
- DISC 2: U.S. Coins Mode
- All Metal Mode
- Pinpoint Mode (When Pinpoint button is pressed)

Review by Jo on December 2, 2020Used for 3 years, finds a gold ring buried 3" in sand, but does NOT find small nuggets in fresh water - tried with purchased small nuggets and no response at any frequency or setting. Excels at old rifle shells, rusty nails, aluminum foil and pull tabs, BUT NO RESPONSE WITH VERIFIED SMALL NUGGETS in or out of water.
Review by Fat Fool Metal Detecting on YouTube Rick Landaker for Facebook on August 20, 2019I Love this detector if you want to find rings you can find lots of rings and it is a crazy coin finder as well. But it has a little hard time near salt water but dry sand it is great and in fresh water it will do great . my detector has paid for me to go England 2 years in a row I can not say how much I love it and I have the Minelab Equinox 800 I use for saltwater only I Head out for the 2nd England trip August 27th 2019 come back September 18 2019 after Detectival!! yay yes I will use the Garrett AT Gold with Garrett Z-Lynk MS-3 Headphones / Pro-Pointer AT Z-Lynk Kit it makes life easy when you go on digs with people and club digs.
Review by Kay on August 20, 2019This has been my favorite detector ever since I got it from Kellyco. It works great in the parks and in the water too.

Review by Steve on August 20, 2019This is my all-time favorite machine at this point. Great relic and coin hunting Hawk of a detector!I live in North GA. Mountains-in Dahlonega, home of the first US goldrush.I found three nice nuggets my first time out on the Chestatee River.Very easy to learn operations and would recommend it to anyone in gold bearing land.nicely priced I might add.Thanks Garrett and Kellyco!Steve Finnemore
Review by Leon-Art-O on August 3, 2017This machine is so much different than the AT Pro that the only true similarity between them is the outward appearance. The AT Gold has amazing speed (recovery), it's at least 3 times faster than the Pro. The all-metal mode brings it up to the level of a "real" metal detector and the ability to use the iron audio feature within the all-metal mode to get 2 tones is also a big plus. The possibility of losing a bit of depth because of the 18kHz is easily offset with a larger coil. I air-tested both the Pro and the Gold together with the same coils and the depth difference was very little (1/8"?) - If you have the chance to buy either, I'd suggest the Gold. Especially if your going to be hunting in iron infested locations with nails and such. This machine will pull out the goods!
Review by Ricky on October 10, 2016I read about this one and heard good things, but I would not have gotten it if I had known that when you use it without headphones it is very, very loud and disturbing to neighbors or anybody within a block, there is NO VOLUME control, HOW DUMB IS THAT! I want to be able to turn it down and I don't want to wear headphones all the time! I was very upset about this, I wish I knew a way to break into it and turn the speaker down, or give me my money back. I will buy a Garrett if it cost more or less to get a volume, good grief.
Review by Jacky M on April 7, 2015Had both for about a month. Must say they're great and easy to learn! Found over $50.00 in coins, silver rings and other things. Does what it says. The key is get to know your machine! THANKS KELLYCO for a great price and service.
Review by Roger R on May 22, 2014I was greatly surprised that Kellyco lived up to their ad. I received my AT Gold on time, as promised. OPTION 1 contained all material except the belt holder for the pin pointer. Option 1 is the cheaper of the two options. However, no other company offered anything extra and all had a higher price for the AT Gold. This is an exceptional bargain. I will gladly use Kellyco for my future needs. A great experience.

Q: A couple of questions. One, when the depth says 10' does that mean the coil or the control box? If it is the control box does that mean the coil could go a little deeper? And next question, can you use the machine on land or underwater without headphones, if so, does it have audio underwater, or do you always need to look at the readout? ThanksA: Consider if you are holding the detector horizontal, it can go to 10 feet. It can be used with or without headphones but you may lose audio underwater and the display may be harder to see. I would recommend underwater headphones if you will be submerging it.

Q: I have been told this is a good detector. I am a starter at this but want to learn. Question- to what depths can this detector pick up hits? Would it pick up at 3 feet? PaulA: This is a great entry level detector to use! However, it is a VLF detector and cannot go 3 feet. Size of the target and soil conditions have an impact on depth. We can say based on the coil size it will go 6 to 8 inches.
