A lot of artists ask me which compressor is best for them, and it really comes down to the compressor’s use.
I recommend a high-volume compressor like the Iwata-Medea Studio Series Power Jet Lite for salon use, since it’s larger and bulkier than a tanning kit usually allows space for. However, it stays cool to the touch and is nice and quiet, which is ideal for small tanning studios and spas.
The Paasche DA400R below is small, light, compact, and fits seamlessly into my tanning kit. It does get slightly warm with high-volume tanning, so I recommend using it for mobile spray tanning appointments, so it gets a little time to cool down between bookings.
Both compressors will get the job done well, and since both are very affordable, many artists who do mobile spray tans AND own a studio purchase both to be set up for long-term tanning.
