Yes, I believe many detectors in the 10 to 15 kilohertz range can make very good general-purpose detectors.

Note that I said many because not all detectors are going to work well just because they're in a certain operating frequency range. George Payne wrote an article about his frequency selection back when he was designing his treasure Baron series which operated 12.5 kilohertz. That's right in the middle of the 10 to 15 kilohertz range that I find be ideal. All my Tesoro's work between 10 and 15 kilohertz. My Macro Racer works at 14 kilohertz. My Nokta FORS CoRe models work at 15 kilohertz.

My former used MXT Pro and MX-5 work that 14 kilohertz roughly. There have been others that are good detectors in this frequency range for coin hunting and jewelry hunting.
