A friend has offered me an airbrush but I need to find a compressor for it. My main requirement is that it be very quiet as I only get to paint late at night when both my wife and baby are asleep. Any recommendations?

Having decided to move my airbrushing to the garage so as not to risk waking the baby or 'er indoors, I was looking at this as a beginners kit. Anyone got any comments on it? Good? Bad? Cheap? Expensive?

I'm not familiar with that particular brand, but it does have everything that you would want-dual tank (much less noise), regulator with moisture trap. Should be fine. The only thing that I would want to see is a section of pipe to move the regulator away from the pump itself to prevent moisture buildup in the line. I would say for it at that price of the brand checks out.

Thanks. I've borrowed my friend's airbrush for a couple of weeks whilst he's on holiday so once I get the hang of using it I'll make a decision on getting one of my own.

This question seems to pop up quite a bit. Once you have a little time with the new one perhaps we can start a discussion thread in which people post their setup, modifications, and where they bought them as a guide for new airbrushers. I know that it certainly is a plunge money-wise and would prove to be a great resource.

Sounds like a good idea.

Send a PM to me after you get a little bit of time in with the new compressor and I'll start the thread as a guide for airbrushing beginners.

Just select one with tank.


Compressor isnt super quite thing anyway, but with tank it will work less frequently.
