Our official Youtube channel

Hello detectorists,

I haven’t announced it yet, but we are now having an official Youtube channel called “The detectorist”. You can check it out, we just started but we will add more videos soon. We don’t monetize it with ads because I personally don’t really like them because it negatively affects our experience when we want to watch something.

Why the Youtube channel?

You probably know the saying that an image holds up to 1000 words, well, video holds up even more if that’s true. My goal is to offer metal detectorists great, consistent content which they can use to get an impression of what’s good and what’s not.
Youtube with the videos are offering a new way of showing that content to my audience and that’s why you will see more and more videos in the near future.

What I will cover in videos?

I will start by covering popular models about metal detectors and create blog reviews as well in parallel. That way we will have better information with many more images for you.
After we cover multiple models I’ll pick some broad models to compare them or similar articles like best metal detector.

Work process to create a video

I found out the hard way that to create a video is way different than creating an article. I couldn’t imagine that it will be that different, even if we are talking about the same products. The first component to create a video is to first research that model. This usually takes a lot of time and valuable info is always hard to find. Moreover, you can find contradicting factors like someone says it works and another is saying that it isn’t working. Filtering all the noise and finding valuable insight is what makes this blog stand out after so many years and I’m really glad that people come again and again in here.

After that component with videos you need to find a lot of media and the hard part is that it shouldn’t be copyrighted. Sometimes this means to find people and ask for their permission or similar cases when you can’t find enough material. This is a time-consuming task, but the end product is worth waiting for.

Your feedback matters!

If you want to cover a special model or feature please let me know in the comments and I’ll do my best to document about that.


I’m one of the founders of this blog. A 32 yr old from Lincolnshire & proud father of 3 beautiful children. My first metal detector was a garret ace 150 but I am currently using the Garrett ace 400i. My best find was a roman coin. Feel free to ask me any questions.
