    try coleiro valley road. still i beleive that to maximize airbrushing you need a compressor with a reservoir which this one does not have.

    Ray if your going for a comp with reserv tank try as alex told you ..Colero and billy engineers Marsa and anastasi st venera...and of course buy the one with the belt ...not direct drive.... because with the belt will be less noise....

    Ray if you need a small compressor which I do not use anymore and I can lend it to you but as Adrian said it is noisy ... but then you can always invest in cheap earplugs Surprised

    I said it makes SOME noise. its not a jackhammer! +you get use to it in time. if you put it under the table and on something stable it shouldnt annoy you.

    If I remember correctly, Aldo has a good silent compressor which also has a small reservoir. Try asking him.
