I don't know that the kind really matters. Just remember, the bigger the tank the less it will run. Also, be sure and get one you can adjust the pressure on. Other than that brand name is up to you. I have a bigger 20 gallon one but the one I airbrush from is a little 2 gal Cambell Hausfield and it does a great job. Under a hundred bucks and I can use it for other stuff too. Try Habor Freight they have good deals sometimes.

I bought a Pasche compressor and am happy with it.
I would have bought a bigger one but dont like the noise.:)

If you can handle a little more noise go with an oil-less compressor. You will have less of a chance to contaminate your paint with oil this way.
