Airbrush Prices?

5 posts in this topic

What should someone expect to pay for a good airbrush? And I'm sure that this has been ask a million times, but for reliability which one do you recommend?

I've used Badger, Paasche and Iwata. All of them are reliable (airbrushes have only a few simple moving parts) as long as you keep them clean and don't abuse them. As to which will suit best, it's mostly a matter of how fine a spray pattern you want, what kind of paint you use, your skill level, and how much you want to pay. There's plenty of discussion about particular models of airbrushes and compressors here on the board if you do a search for the info. JMHO, a good quality brush will usually retail for $75-200. You get what you pay for. Check out Dixieart.com and Ebay. The compressor, the airbrush, and the paint you use are an integrated system. A great brush with a lousy compressor is still a lousy system.

If you are just beginning airbrushing, a good choice would be a Paasche model H. They have been around for a long time, simplistic and reliable, as well as inexpensive. If you come to the point where your skill is beyond what a H model can deliver, then upgrade. You can always use the H model for other tasks. If you paint many baits at once several brushes can prove to be beneficial.
