Gold Bug metal detector Review by Ralph S
I bought a Fisher Gold Bug and it was a little pricey but it works well and I do like the numbers that will give you a general idea of what is under ground in the area you are working. So far I found a penny and a lot of trash items near my home. The property had a house on it that burned down as well as a barn that burned too. I did find a buckle that may be silver but I haven't tested it yet. It was quite dirty but no corrosion. It was about four inches deep.

I tested for gold with a pair of Gold earrings my wife allowed me to use. They tested at 44 so that was a good indicator for me to go by and I set the discriminator at 30. Nails etc would grunt or not sound at all. This helped some but this place is nearly impossible to get through unless I spent a year cleaning the top ten inches. I didn't find anything further away than a inch that was small like earrings. I wish it had better depth so it might get below the trash and find something good. Is it possible to change the tone for gold especially. I would like a low to high tone or vice versa. I made the iron sound very low so how do I set the Gold to make a different sound than mostly anything else? (Posted on June 24, 2016)

Best detector yet in my opinion. Review by G Thomas
My son and I have several detectors and find that the Fisher Goldbug is the best detector yet, value for money. In a year and a half it has paid for itself two times over in gold. I purchased it to replace my other brand detector that cost $7500 and have actually found more gold with the Goldbug.

So easy to use and get used to - I am 'sold' on it! (Posted on August 19, 2014)

After two years, I am very satified Review by Jose A
This metal detector is lightweight, durable, and lots of fun. I have found lots of silver rings and three gold rings. Haven't been able to go gold nugget hunting but I’m sure it won't disappoint me. (Posted on August 11, 2014)

I love it! Review by Bob J
I have owned the Fisher Gold Bug for one month and have taken it out to various parks to look for coins, rings etc. This thing kills it! I can't believe how accurate it is! I have found dimes, quarters and a ring so far. I run in Disc mode and run the plus side to 80, since anything worthwhile hits 80 and above. I'm looking forward to going out into the desert and searching for gold next. I highly recommend this metal detector. (Posted on January 30, 2014)
