I made this one for testing while driving. Works pretty well. Right now,
I'm working on my high-tech one where I'm applying everything I've learned/
used with studio recording to det detection. It's turning into something
pretty fun.

Here's the Doctor Det -

If you have a good mic and a good amplifier, then go for it. However, when price matters, a simple det can is definitely the best bang for your buck. I've tried making electric versions with cheaper mics and amplifiers, and they have never worked well. I never saw a real need to buy more expensive equipment to do something that can be achieved with copper tubing and a hammer.
