The company Golden Mask originates from the brand Banditto. But after the discovery of the golden mask of the Thracian Tsar, the company changed the brand name to the already familiar Golden Mask.

Teknetics G2 + – Review of the detector, tuning tips, and how to look for, and find gold!

Recently a fellow detectorist got himself the Teknetics T2. A good detector, I hope that someday I will find it among my friends who live nearby and with whom you can go digging and create an interesting overview of this detector and write all the secrets.
