New airbrush and compressor
Posted by dazzjazz on Wednesday, August 31, 2022 4:45 AM

Hi all,

l've been using my Sparmax airbrush and Arism mini compressor for a few years now, and I feel like I want to upgrade. I've written about issues with my airbrush on this forum, and while I might be blaming my tools, I feel something that performs better would be a big help. As for the compressor, it doesn't have a tank, so it's really noisy.

im prepared to invest money in this, hoping it's the last setup I will ever buy...might be wishful thinking. What would you recommend?

thanks

Darren

These are what I use on a daily basis:

Compressor:

Airbrush (Had mine for more than 35 years now.  Never found anything that could do what it couldn't...and it is completely hassle-free, its like the AK-47 of airbrushes):

I switched to CO2 many years ago and love it.  No noise or condensation.  I'll second the paasche H - I use it for 99% of what I do.  I do have a Badger Krome double action that I'm learning with so I can't endorse with any authority but I did read a lot of good things about it.  Let us know what you go with.

Thanks,

John

I think he's talking about simply filling a storage tank with CO2 rather then a compressor type.

Wow that's serious...too much for me! I just need a compressor with a tank that's very quiet.

Don't think you'll find anything more quiet than John's setup.

You want a Bambi or similar style compressor. They work like a refrigerator's freon compressor. its going to be the quietest option without going to a CO2 tank. expensive though...
