i bought a new laser trident 2 si last year as a back up machine for my deus - it's a lovely machine - all analogue as well and operates at 18khz, it cost me about £450 with headphones, could have bought a G2 second hand for around £300 which would have been far superior but there's something about the analogue that just feels good - a bit like valve amplifiers?

I didn't know about this until just now looking for the correct place to post I've "just, purchased a Tesoro Laser B3 off evilbay I did a little bit of reading up on the model before buying it and they appear to be quite good but now hoping I don't have any issues with it because if Tesoro has now shut up shop I'm going to be screwed for getting it sorted out :(
hello, its no worry if you are in the UK as there is Pentechnic in Staffordshire

Hiya,

I purchased a Tejon last week as I've always wanted one and I was worried they would disappear from dealer websites. I'm confident that I can get it repaired if things go wrong. I read on a US forum that Tesoro is waiting until dealer stocks are run down before they make an announcement. Seems odd that they have yet to make an official statement.

Thanks,

Nige.

Shame to see the brand go. I had the b1 hi power for many years and found many hammered. Great machines in their day.

Thats what happens when you hand the business over to a care less Son ,who allows the business to just go to the dogs after you`ve built it up over 40 years .

The cracks started to show a long while ago. After initially taking the UK market by storm they just couldn't good keep up with developments elsewhere. ::g

Yes, below is my old B3 Laser with the full Penteknics conversion, I compared it with a mates Laser Rapier, performance was identical despite my machine being 20 years older, the only advantage with the newer machine was it was much lighter, I sold the B3 last year as it never got used. Shame the company never moved forward.

It's true to say, it's potentially a sad end to a once great marque which led the UK detector sales market during the 80's. Notably due to the popularity of the silver and golden sabre models. Their aluminium built control boxes proved capable of taking take punishment or as littleboot put it, they were 'bomb proof'. Still a force to be reckoned with as a reliable S/H purchase.
A disservice is no service at all.
