In the Inspire series of compressors the leading one would be the TC-620X model. This model has enhanced portability and it is easy to store because of its lightweight metal housing. Its two air outlets and an accompanying air tank, it enables users to manage their workspace with greater flexibility and efficiency. The extra air outlet gives you the option to connect airbrushes beforehand and switch between uses of airbrushes. Through it flows clean and stable air, in total control of the user. The model has auto on/off function of 40 psi/60 psi and a 2.5 liter air tank with gauge. The price of Sparmax TC620X is higher than Master models, but worth the money.

What’s in the box?

Unpacking the box within a box reveals a nicely finished black steel casing, containing the pressure tank at the bottom and the compressor motor at the top. The on/off switch is at the back, with the other controls placed at the front and the main control is the pressure regulator on top. Pull it out and turn clockwise to increase pressure or anticlockwise to decrease. The dial alongside will tell you the settings, and you just push the regulator back in to lock it. Another pressure gauge is found on the tank to display what pressure it has and you are supplied with 2 air hoses of 3 meters length.

The main reason why I bought this model was that it has an air tank. So rather than just an electric motor directly pumping air to your airbrush, this one pumps it into a pressure tank. The difference is that it supplies a smooth, pulse and moisture free stream of air. Another benefit is that it enables fine control of the actual pressure setting, and gives an extremely consistent flow of air. Another great thing is that it has 2 air outlets which enables you to run a pair of airbrushes at the same time, and how cool is that?! The motor has the ability to switch on periodically to maintain the pressure as you draw off air. The motor is a little noisier but the thing that is noticeable right away is the smoothness and the consistency of the airflow. This is precisely the thing that makes me look forward to all the other painting jobs.

Final thoughts

When buying an airbrush compressor you should pay attention to quality and buy the best one for the money you have. This unit has high performance and a perfection in air supply. It gives you an opportunity to work with two airbrushes simultaneously. Oil-less compressor is extremely versatile and stylish. The bad sides could be the price, which is a bit high, and a little bit more noise which it produces. But all in all, totally worth it!
