Product Overview
The Tesoro Compadre was designed with the idea that less is more. It works great for coin hunting, competition hunting and relic hunting, but it does it without any excess knobs.

A Great First Detector

The Tesoro Compadre Metal Detector was designed with the idea that less is more. This modest metal detector can do a lot of the same things that its bigger brothers can do. It works great for coin hunting, competition hunting and relic hunting, but it does it without any excess knobs.

Simple Sophistication

Switch on the Tesoro Compadre detector and you're working in a silent search, motion all metal mode. The farther you turn the knob, the more discrimination you can bring to bear on those trashy sites. The Tesoro Compadre metal detector has it all. One knob simplicity for the beginner and high gain circuitry and the famous Tesoro ED-180 discrimination for the advanced user. If one detector can do all of this, maybe less is more.
