You can't go wrong with brass. Don't buy chinese, unless you're buying MYA. I own two, and they don't compare to a KM or Nour, but they're better than any other Chinese shishas. Hoses are cheap. $20 for a Razan/Grand/Nammor, and those are as good as they get. Worry about the rig first, the hoses are easy to get and much less expensive.
