    Airbrush compressor

    Hi everyone, I'm on the market for an airbrush compressor.
    I've looked through a bunch of the old threads and I don't really see anything about reccomendations.

    Considerations:

    I'm in the US, I am willing to drop anywhere up to about 300 bucks(maybe more) as long as I know I am getting quality, and there just really isn't any review sites or anything of that nature.
    I live in a rather small, enclosed space so noise is an issue. I would like to be able to get to 50 PSI so I have more flexability on paints and stuff.

    Can anyone point me in the right direction of what you use, how it works.
    I've closely considered "shop" compressors, but I'm sort of leaning against it since I don't have a garage to work in.

    The "normal" badger cyclone compressors and such only get UP to about 30 PSI, which really doesn't give me much power to work with.

    Please help me out, I have an airbrush and I'm completely fed up with aircans(not to mention they make me dizzy, even with good ventilation)

    Thanks in advance.

    Hashmallum, could you please give me the brand of the compressor so I can do some searches to look into it? Thanks!

    I use a shop compressor. Once it is filled you can use quite a while with an airbrush without having to worry about the noise - but filling it is ---- loud...

    Not sure what the quality is with the other smaller compressors. for what you get the larger shop compressors are a better value per dollar but if space is your issue...

    cheers,

    Thanks Mike, from what many people have already told me, I may be asking for too much for my budget, I know that professional compressors can get the PSI I want but at about 1000 to 1500 bucks. What brand/type/model of shop compressor do you use?
    oil-less, pancake... one of those big honkin ones? how big is your air resivoire?
