Dan, perhaps I can help you out?

Do you only have one search coil for the Silver Sabre microMAX or more than one? That's important because if you swap coils on any of Tesoro's preset GB models, you need to have a functionally calibrated GB setting.

As most folks know, I am a bit of a fan of several Tesoro models, the Silver Sabre microMAX and Bandido II microMAX being my top-two favorites. I have two of each of those in my Regular-Use Detector Outfit, mainly keeping a set of them on my den wall display and the other set for regular use. I also prefer to make any coil changes on a Bandido version because it has manual GB so I can calibrate it to any search coil used. The Silver Sabre units keep an assigned search coil on full-time so there won't be any issues with an errant GB setting since they only use one search coil.

For what the Tesoro models can do and the types of sites where I grab them to work most often, I found the 6" Concentric coil to be about the best size and functional search coil to work in and around trash or metal structures. I used to use the 7" Concentric almost full-time on every Tesoro since mid-'83 ... until they brought out the thin and light-weight .. and handy .. 6" Concentric.

I would be more than pleased to check out your Silver Sabre microMAX, and any search coils you have for it, to make sure it is functioning properly, and if the GB is a little 'off' I'd also be glad to tweak that for you as well. No shipping needed, either.

I live over here in Vale, Oregon and (all to often) make drives to the VA Clinic in Caldwell or the VA Hospital in Boise, so making a jaunt to the Meridian area wouldn't be an issue for me. I have a lot of free time to work it in, with the one flag being deer hunting season is coming soon and I'll be devoting a little time for that. Soon would be good, and make sure you have a device that is good-to-go.

Just give me a call and we can work out a time that works for us. Number is below in my Signature. Early-to-late usually catches me, most any day.
