Mya does not make traditional chambered hookahs, and to my knowledge not even a common plated hookah.

Your best bet is to find one of those tiny little egpytians and ask the person selling it to tell you which it is guy.

MYA's are out of the quetion as they dont purge well, but you can use to a straw to sort it out, if you dont mind playing around with it a bit

I dunno, I would stick with Mya for mini hookahs actually.

See, the egyptians under 24" even from Magdy Zidan are not very heavy stems, and will not be able to take a nammor style hose very well. I have had a Fatota and an MZ Safari, and both were pretty iffy with the heavy hoses, but fine with normal hoses.
These hookahs are not as high quality as the myas, either, so for only 20 bucks more you buy a Mya and get a brass hookahs that's very high quality and very sturdy. I would recommend the Bambino.

You don't have to purge all the time if you want your heat. My sessions go for hours, and I do not purge even once.

I think everyone has the idea here. Go with Mya for small, but be prepared for it. I'd personally get a KM or Nour, but whatever fits your tastes, bud.

IMO Small hookahs are just a waste .. you can feel the smoke because it is hot. Sorry, just being honest!

I have purchased TWO of the 22" Temsah hookahs from Hookah-Company. They both smoke great and purge well, but you will probably want ot upgrade the hoze to a Nammor, razan or Grand. (narbish is too big and will knock your rig over, or fall out all the time)

Temsah 22" Mini-Wheat:
Part One
Part Two

Temsah 22" Lava:
Part One
Part Two

the stem doesnt really chill down the smoke as much as you'd think. just make sure you have cold water in the base, and voila...you win.

My 24" inch Mya smokes cool, purges well, and it came with a travelers case. If you purchased any mid-sized hookah that you could break down, you should be okay.

What about a 13 - 15 inch Fatota Hookah? I've seen several.

Truthfully, are they any good?

Not necesserily.

I personally use large hookahs myself but if i have to travel like i did recently and wanted to smoke shisha in my hotel i took my mini mya with me. Its true that smoke gets hot so i used starbuzz which is lightweight stuff and didnt cause me any problems. I know nakhla is better but id rather smoke starbuzz than nothing.

I'll push the idea still to get small MYA. if you watch the heat you wont really need to purge, which is really the only strong suit for the traditional chamber.

While it's a valid argument, I also find that warmer smoke seems to deliver more flavour to your palate and tongue. I've been alternating between my KM and my Bambino lately, and found that the flavours are more intense with the Mya. I don't have a favorite, I love the hell out of both.

if you are using a mya hose with that bambino, it could be because of the tighter draw...i notice the flavor is better when not on wide open.

The many small hookahs I have owned don't have hot smoke. Smoke temperature is based mostly on the temp. of the water in the base.

Don't believe me? Put hot water in the base and try to smoke. A Cigar is a cooler smoke than that.

normally your right on about stuff sambooka.. but my first hookah was a 16" starbuzz bulet and the smoke was great out of it.. only got harsh or hot smoke when i burned a bowl.. other than that nothin but smooth hits.. to answer the posters question.. if you want a good small one you dont mind spending money on. go with a mya.. otherwise id suggest picking up a 16" starbuzz bulet for 35$.. well worth the money for once.

How small are you looking for? I myself was thinking of pickup up the syrian dual metal hookah from HJ, its 20" and I belive traditional chamber. I am going to get one of these in the future hopefully.
