Like the original Gold Bug, the Gold Bug-2 is designed for finding gold nuggets. It offers extraordinary sensitivity, ultra-high frequency (the highest operating frequency on the market), iron-discrimination, dust and moisture resistance, audio-boost and the ability to operate in extremely mineralized soil with a 3-position mineralization switch. Backed by Fisher’s 5-year Warranty.

  • THRESHOLD: Small shaft on rear of control housing, controls threshold tone.
  • MODE: Three‑position toggle switch: 1. IRON DISC Mode for iron discrimination.
  • NORMAL Mode for normal All Metal operation. 3. AUDIO BOOST Mode for hearing faint, deep targets.
  • BATTERY TEST/SENSITIVITY: Dual-purpose potentiometer with switch for Audio‑Tone battery test, controls sensiti­vity to targets, electrical interference and ground minerals.
  • GROUND REJECT: Dual-knob control used to electronically tune the electronics to ignore ground minerals. A small, single‑turn coarse adjust knob is stacked on a large, 16‑turn fine tuning control.
  • VOLUME: Turns the power on and controls signal response volume.
  • HEADPHONES: Jack for most mono and stereo headphones with 1/4-inch plug.
