Default Pimping an EconoMya Gelato

First post, folks... And before I launch into it, I would like to say that I'm amazed at the vibrant community y'all have built around something so simple, but, as has been said countless times, hookah smoking is essentially a social activity.

That being said, my question is this: How do I make an out-of-the-box EconoMya Gelato 13" (pink... and, before you say anything snarky, it's for my girlfriend's birthday) into a one-of-a-kind smoking heirloom? Yeah, I know, being that it's a MYA, it's not likely to become anyone's heirloom, but willfully suspend your disbelief with me, won't you?

My first thought is that the stock Mya hose has to go... Obviously this will make for a good backup hose in a pinch, but when you get one of these bad boys in pink, it is less than attractive. I'd also like to stick something wider, with a significantly less laborious draw, on this hookah. Any suggestions as to type of hose are welcome. I've perused the Razan and Namor hoses, but I'm not sure that their fittings will be the proper size for this hookah. Input on the compatibility front is also appreciated.

Other than the hose thing, what else are you dedicated hookahpros thinking, with respect to tricking this hookah (which I think is a fundamentally attractive piece, btw) out?

Thank you for reading this post, and thank you in advance for sharing your wisdom.

theres not much to do to trick out a smaller hookah.. its hard to find "cooler" bases for smaller hookahs.

as for the hoses, check the review section for that... narbish would probably be too heavy... but let me say im actually enjoying the mya hose on my bambino...its really good at controlling smoke and focusing flavor...your best bet is the washable route of some sort if you want a wider draw...

and play around with different bowls to see what you like

As far as I know, all mya ports are the same. So a razan/nammor will fit. Definately do not get a narbish for it, as it will probably have stability issues. Even a razan or nammor may make the hookah a bit tippy. You could get a base light, where LEDs shine up into the vase and illuminate the water and the smoke. You could also get a funnel bowl/vortex bowl/etc.

That is almost exactly what I was waiting to hear, Miwako. I had cruised that one, thinking maybe it was called for. I'll think more about it now. Boom.
