Default Re: Common Chamber?

Myas and JandR Syrians are the more famous Common chambers. jandR hookahs are plated, which means there is a plate with 4 holes OVER the opening to the Common Chamber. this restricts/slows down the airflow, making the pull slower, but meaning you don't need to inhale as hard, but you need to for longer. I believe, in my experience, that leads to a more flavorful smoke, because the smooke rolls over your tongue slower, so you can taste it easily.
Mya's have wide open chambers, but they will not be able to get the best amount fo smoke because of a larger, less concentrated vacuum then in an Egyptian.
