I have been using a CM-C - the gravity feed version of this airbrush for the last 15 years and loved it. I'd always been curious about the side feed version, as many of my favorite artists use it. So, with the birthday coming up, I took the plunge and bought myself one.
I have been using it the last few days, and all I can say is AMAZING. I find I have far more control than even with my trusty CM-C micron, it atomizes paint better than anything else I have ever used, just sips paint, so even a single drop goes a long way, and I can lay down smooth lines less than 1/10th of a mm. Being able to tilt the cup to spray upward is a game changer, as is having no big cup on the top. I can see better what I am doing when up close and doing detail, and there is more space for my big ogre like hands on the trigger with no cup in the way. So it is more comfortable to use.
The CM-C is slightly better at thicker paints, so it is still going to be my go-to for that, but I think this CM-SB will become my new daily driver.
I am in love with this brush. It's everything I have ever wanted in an airbrush.
Shipped fast, and excellent service, as always, thank you Maple!
Been waiting a long time to get this iwata and I was not disappointed. The fine detail with the 0.18 needle is awesome. The sight line without the cup on top, is a game changer for up close painting. The only issue is figuring out the reducing of paint for optimum flow...but that just means I have to use the cm-sb more hours in the day. Cheers
This isn't my first purchase from this store and as always it is very fast service. Prices are competitive too. It becomes my first store for airbrushing needs
Thanks for great service
Been wanting one for a long time!!! Now I have it!!!! Thanks to Donna for the amazing service once again
First off I am once again overwhelmingly pleased with the service Donna at Maple Airbrush Supplies is able to provide. Her timeliness and professionalism in both communication and shipping is without any faults. I discussed my desire to order a new airbrush, and when I made my decision, she shipped it immediately and it was at my door in less than a couple days. She followed up after as well.
As for the airbrush, for anyone who has used an Iwata Custom Micron, if you have a need for a brush of the highest caliber, it will not disappoint. This is my second Micron, first of the version 2, and I just love the quality and control it provides.
