  • Whats the Difference Between the New Garrett AT Max - AT Pro and AT Gold?

    So the Garrett AT Max is almost ready to release for 2017 and we could not be more excited. The Garrett AT Pro and Garrett AT Gold have been outstanding machines and often our favorite mid to high level metal detector to use and to point our customer toward. If price, value, performance, depth, all around build quality and honest to goodness good ole American made metal detectors is what your after look no further than the Garrett AT Series.


    We expect the new Garrett AT MAX to be no exception! Below is the differences in the Garrett AT MAX and the Garrett AT PRO and GOLD.

    New Built-in Z-Lynk Wireless Technology • Lose the old cord! Integrated and built incircuitry transmits audio to your Garrett MS wireless headphones. Six times faster than Old Bluetooth speed! All with easy to use Auto pairing. No cables or wires to tangle up, and no interference from other wireless electronic devices.

    New Adjustable Volume control • Garrett has just added a volume control to the Garrett AT MAX. Now you can use any headphones you want and control the volume from the machine or use no headphones at all and adjust the built in speaker to your liking and situation.

    New Garrett MS-3 Z-Lynk Wireless Headphones are now included FREE • The amazing speed of Z-Lynk Wireless Technology, and high-fidelity stereo audio with no wires cords attaching you to anything.

    Even MORE Maximum Detection Depth for the MAX • Increased TX transmitting power and enhanced electronics gains the AT Max with significant depth increase over older AT series machines!

    New true All Metal Mode • Garrett AT MAX detects every type of metal and provides the even greater possible detection depth and sensitivity for those hunted out areas!

    Bright LED Backlight • Illuminates LCD screen for improved visibility in low light situations to keep you in the field on a hotspot after others had to call it a day.

    All new optimized frequency • The AT Max 13.6 kHz operating frequency provides deeper and excellent detection on a extreme range of new targets. including deeper silver coins, gold jewelry and rings, and brass and civil war relics.

    Better High Resolution Ground Balance • Easy to use automatic and manually adjustable for improved performance. Includes 175 points of Ground Balance resolution or adjustments, allowing the Garett AT Max to push deeper through both conductive soils (such as saltwater beaches) and highly mineralized ground which all detectors have difficulty with.

    Fast Automatic Ground Balance Window • Garrett New Exclusive feature will simultaneously ground balance the AT MAX to a range of values to help overcome localized ground mineralization and differences. The Garrett At Max reduces subtle ground responses, the Automatic Ground Balance Window smooths detector audio and allows the user to hear faint targets that otherwise would NEVER be heard!

    Brighter and Larger Display Numbers • Digital Target ID number, Iron Discrim number to make things easier to see in the daylight and at night.

    More Control Buttons • That are all easily accessible with a single finger as you swing away with the AT MAX.

    Manually Adjustable User Threshold • AT MAX users can now manually adjust the audio threshold (the constant background sound or “hum”) to better hear faint targets that would be missed by other metal detectors.
