Designed as a no nonsense metal detector you can pick up, turn on and go for hours of detecting fun. By combing ease of use and light weight, the Alpha 2000 is an easy choice for the beginning metal detector hobbyist.

Its large LCD screen features an accurate numerical depth read out. Visual discrimination is displayed via 8 categories of various common metal objects. Three different audio tones complete the verification process; low tones indicate nails and small gold pieces; medium for zinc pennies, screw caps, pull tabs; and high tone for copper, silver and brass coins. Tones are played through the built-in speaker, for more intent and focused listening however, one can connect either a 1/4 or 1/8 inch headphone set to one of the two available jacks.

The Alpha 2000 is a single frequency model operating at 7.8 kHz. It features a preset ground balance and adjustable sensitivity levels. It comes with an 8-inch concentric search coil. Like all First Texas Products coils, it is waterproof up to 2 feet.
