Four Tone Audio Target Identification System:

While the LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) is very accurate in identifying buried objects, the user in the field does not always maintain the display screen in his field of vision. Therefore, we have incorporated an audio feedback mechanism to alert the user to the nature of buried objects. This audio feedback system first alerts the user to the presence and classification of objects, whose nature and location can be confirmed using the LCD display. The detector can sound four different tones, depending on the object detected.

Advanced Design, Superior Depth & Performance

The Bounty Hunter Legacy 3500 was designed under the supervision of Dave Johnson, Chief Designer for First Texas Products. Dave is one of the top engineers in the metal detecting industry. He has designed leading-edge metal detectors for American manufacturers for over 25 years. The Bounty Hunter Legacy 3500 is one of his latest accomplishments for the Bounty Hunter brand. Many of his design platforms are the backbone of several companies high end product offerings today. Pictured below, you can see that the engineering team works hard and plays hard.

A Deep Seeking Coil Design

The Bounty Hunter Legacy 3500 metal detector features a cutting edge concentric search coil design. The triple spoke design punches down deep and cuts through iron and aluminum trash. The concentric coil winding produces smooth operation for all types of treasure hunting. The search coil is waterproof and features an 8" diameter... a perfect balance between depth and sensitivity. Experience powerful, deep target detection and easy pinpointing.

Understanding the Bounty Hunter Legacy 3500 Concentric Search Coil Design:

The Bounty Hunter Legacy 2500 concentric coil is engineered with both an inner circle and an outer circle wire winding. The search pattern produced is cone shaped and is excellent for accurately pinpointing targets with ease. This Bounty Hunter Search coil includes the latest technology and is waterproof and electro statically shielded. In general, larger search coils will give better depth with larger targets and better ground coverage. However, sensitivity to smaller objects may be sacrificed. Smaller search coils will offer greater sensitivity to smaller objects and improved target separation in trashy soil. This coil offers the perfect balance of depth and sensitivity.

The Bounty Hunter legacy 3500 features motion discrimination and an all metal pinpoint mode. The numeric target identification accurately identifies buried targets on a scale from 0 to 99. The programmable discrimination provides 4 tone target identification and 7 segment target elimination. The 11 segment digital target identification helps you identify what is in the ground. The notch discrimination filters out junk while still locating gold and valuables. You will enjoy the jumbo LCD display. This unit features a motion discrimination mode and an all metal mode. Targets are identified with a four tone 4 tone audio target response. You can easily identify the targets before digging. A notch discrimination filter gets rid of junk while still locating gold and valuables. A zap mode lets you accept or reject specific targets. The coin depth is shown on the digital display from 0 to 8 inches. The legacy 2500 features a squelch tech noise reduction circuitry digital touch pad controls. This model features an interchangeable coil system so that you can choose from a 4" or 10" coil option. The design features a padded arm rest, adjustable aluminum stem and comfort hand grip.

Would the Bounty Hunter 3500 be a good choice for someone who really wants to get into this hobby?
Question by: Cathy on Oct 4, 2017, 11:22 PM Link
Yes, the Bounty Hunter Legacy 3500 is a great choice for someone looking to get started, but also wants some advanced features. This model offers more discrimination options than other detectors for the price range, while also having a ground balance, and sensitivity adjustment.

Would the Bounty Hunter Legacy 3500 metal detector be a good choice for my 8 yr. old grandson?
Question by: Dancin'Dottie on Jul 14, 2017, 3:36 PM Link
Absolutely! At a lightweight of just 2.6 lbs, the Legacy 3500 is easy to operate & the middle rod shortens & lengthens for both young & old alike!

Is it water proof
Question by: james oldfield on Sep 11, 2018, 5:26 PM Link
The search coil on this metal detector is waterproof, so you will be able to search in shallow water. The control box is NOT waterproof, so it can not be submerged, or used in the rain.

How will the gold nugget coil work on my legacy 3500 for the settings and how will it show up what does it read as also
Question by: Andrew Ruggiero on Mar 21, 2019, 10:58 PM Link
The 4-inch coil will certainly be a great option for the 3500 if you're looking for gold nuggets. It will still be able to detect all metals, but it will enhance the detector's ability to detect small targets, like tiny gold nuggets.
Answer by: on Mar 22, 2019, 10:15 AM
how deep can it seach
Question by: marc melchiori on Nov 2, 2019, 3:12 PM Link
About 8-10 inches or so
Answer by: on Nov 4, 2019, 11:35 AM
This has 6.25khz but to find gold doesn't it have to have a higher khz such as 14khz or higher ?
Question by: Kari on Apr 8, 2019, 11:16 AM Link
All frequencies are able to detect gold, but higher operating frequencies will allow a detector to become more sensitive to natural gold nuggets, which are typically very small targets. Gold coins and jewelry are typically larger than the nuggets you'll come across, so most detectors can handle that.

What are all the R's showing on my Legacy 3500 Bounty Hunter LCD screen?? Help!
Question by: MadRiverJack on Jul 14, 2017, 3:27 PM Link
The Legacy 3500 has many top end features such as NOTCH discrimination. The "R" under the various targets stands for "Reject". That conductivity region of trash targets with an R will be rejected & will not produce an audible sound.
