I wanted to explore painting with an airbrush and this was a great price for a complete kit with everything I needed to get started. The kit came with some instructions but I feel like they should have been more detailed to assist someone who has never had any experience with an airbrush. I was able to go online, do some research and watch some videos to help me become a bit more confident in using it. I like that this kit came with several cleaning tools so I can keep my airbrush working great from the very first use. The compressor is not very loud so I can use it in my craft room without disturbing anyone else in the house. I use thinned acrylic paints in the airbrush so cleanup was very easy. This is a great airbrushing kit for the beginner or the experienced user.
