It is the person who searches, not the metal detector. The metal detector is only 50% of your success
Follow me on:
Detect History is the site you go to when you want to buy a metal detector – for yourself, for your kid, to explore a new location, or to choose a new one instead of an old one.
This resource is created for detectorists of all levels, from newbies to seasoned treasure hunters. I take effort to explain things no one usually explains to beginner detectorists. Experienced detectorists, in their turn, can find out more about new models of famous brands, or get some insider info.
I am committed to provide objective and honest information. I will never recommend low quality products only because they are popular, or expensive, or look cool. With Detect History, you can be sure that the advice is based on personal experience – including fails, bumps, and bruises.
«My first find was an old M-1903 Springfield shotgun cartridge. I was so excited!»
«I have immediately noticed the improvement. More settings made my search more comfortable and productive, the number of finds increased. It was words different!»
«I decided to create an Instagram page, just to share the pics of my finds. Little did I imagine where this path would lead me…»
«Before, I already tried to make a site on free platforms, but got no positive result whatsoever. So, I decided to start from scratch.»
«Success at last! Firstly, we made a pilot prototype of the site, and in a few short weeks, I already welcomed the first readers.»
«Inspired, I started to write about literally everything I knew about metal detecting at that moment.»
«By the end of the year, I’ve created awards to the best metal detectors. One of the awards now resides in Nokta Makro’s office, while the other just couldn’t make it to Minelab in distant Australia…»
«The first brand who opened their doors to me for interview was Nokta Makro and their VP Dilek Gonulay. Thank you so much! This was an affecting experience.»
«Eventually, two years later I became aware that, to achieve my goal, I need to improve the website, make it more user-friendly and provide more value to the readers.»
«I released the first full-fledged educational book for beginners, called Time to Detect: The Ultimate Metal Detecting Guide for Beginners, in paperback and in digital form.»
My goal is to make Detect History the World's No.1 website with metal detectors reviews and guidelines, by the end of 2021
My mission is to show what a metal detector can really offer to you, and the goal is to contribute to your success as a metal detectorist.
There are so many reviewing sites and forums on metal detecting, that you can spend months only reading all the resources. But are all of them worth it?
Why Detect History is worthy of your time?
Moreover, I am constantly growing and improving the quality of my content, so that you could get as much info as possible. How I do it?..
Thanks for sharing your experience, Michael
Happy with my new Simplex! Very useful reviews
I was invited for a boat tour for several days and friends told me they will be diving with a metal detector. I enjoyed this a lot, since I'm a decent diver, and wondered where I can find a machine for self. My friends dropped me a link to Detect History, and I found out what detector I exactly needed.
The best thing I like about Detect History is their best metal detector lists. These comparison lists allow to really understand the pros and cons of every detector, and make an informed decision before buying.

«Digging only clear valuable metal signals saves time and effort, but decreases the number of good finds by 2-3 times »
