So, I was looking around at compressors... I have a shop and a couple hundred gallons of air storage/ /35 cfm give or take... But, no reason to fire that up for an airbrush... SO... was looking for something quiet... The "airbrush compressors" are ridiculously overpriced for their quality and performance... So, I went searching in the industrial world... CHECK IT OUT! https://www.powerequipmentdirect.com/stories/1364-How-to-Buy-a-Quiet-Air-Compressor.html Great write up... PLUS a link to "quiet compressors".... from small to "big". https://www.aircompressorsdirect.com/tools/quiet-air-compressors.html Can sort by size, etc... for "airbrush" I just sorted 1 to 2 hp.... https://www.aircompressorsdirect.com/tools/1-2-hp-quiet-air-compressors.html Just tossing this out there. The "Hulk" compressors are made by emax... high end industrial stuff... AND decibal ratings UNDER 50 with tons more air. Under 175 bucks there are compressors that one could use for a mini hvlp limited use.. Hope this helps someone out.
