Primer on textured walls

What type of primer should i use on my newly textured walls in my basement. The texture was done with joint compound. I will be painting over the primer with a latex based pain afterward. Any brand suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

Re: Primer on textured walls

Whichever brand you decide on ensure that it's a primer/sealer for the new compound you put up.

As a recommendation have the primer/sealer tinted to the same color as your paint .... this will help your finish coat look better.

Hope this helps. :)
