Badger Airbrush Equipment

The confusion ends here. There is no need to worry about matching the right airbrush to the right compressor, hose and regulator. We've done that for you here on this page.


Introduction

You'll feel like Dr. Frankenstein once you try to figure out what airbrush goes with which hose and which hose is compatible with which compressor. Therefore, Steve has decided to offer the Badger Air Brush equipment in bundled systems. Each with its best match of brush, hose, fittings and compressor power. Please read the details carefully because the differences are sometimes subtle. Note: There is a $10 assembly and test fee is included with these prices. You will save money if you buy the components separately and assembly them yourself.

Airbrush Systems

SYSTEM MU-E, Makeup/Economy

mu-e

This set is designed for Glamour and Bride airbrushing. The brush is a gravity feed, top mount cup, double acting, little beauty. I love this brush. The small capacity means you can change colors quickly and make color adjustments in the cup. The nearly perfect design means that you can spray heavier liquids at a lower p.s.i.. This is the brush that will spray at the manufacture's recommended p.s.i. of 6 to 10. This system doesn't have the regular, the output is a constant 10 to 12 p.s.i., which is just fine for glamour and beauty sprayed makeup. This is still a professional system at an economical price.

System includes:

  • 1 Type G airbrush
  • 1 5 foot hose with mini- B-5 fittings on each end
  • 1 Lightweight Desktop compressor
  • 1 Assembly and test by Special Effect Supply Corp.

SYSTEM A-E, Anthem, Economy

Now let's say you want to do more than just spray faces. Maybe full body work, possibly props and setwork. Now it's time for a larger, siphon-cup type airbrush. These brushes draw the paint up into the airbrush by suction. It takes more air pressure to do this, so these brushes work on a higher p.s.i. and need a more powerful compressor to do it. The Anthem is a very well designed workhorse. It is easy to use, easy to adjust and easy to clean. In fact, when Badger does trade shows and other demos this is the brush they use. This system is the economy version of an Anthem system, basically the minimum setup.
