Default Buying just the KM Base?

I've been looking through vendors for awhile hoping to come across more KM bases. So far, only John has had any for sale, but didn't quite fit what I'm looking for. A classic bell that isn't fancy, and black in color that is not opaque (prefered) or clear with simple gold banding. I would also consider red because my black hose has a bit of red trim to it. Thehookah.com has one that seemed to fit, but it isn't available anymore. I'm a very aesthetically driven person, so things like this matter to me more than they probably should, but my current vase just isn't right, and it's driving me nuts. The worst part about it is that I just cannot see through it very well without a flashlight to eyeball the water level. It's just been nagging at me for the last month or so.

If only I had the money to up and get a new hose then I could get any vase ha

I know how you feel. I had one of the odd shaped "teardrop" vases with my KM that broke. Took me three weeks to find a similar replacement. Then I got sent the wrong vase.

All I can offer you is try every vendor you know of. Try google searching up more vendors. Sift through their vase collections, and if you don't find what you're looking for, keep trying. I've noticed that alot of the more popular vendors change their inventory every now and again.

Another thing, are you looking for a "KM" branded vase? Because I'm pretty sure that KM doesn't actually make the vases. They're just your standard bell vase.

You talking about something like this?

If you are, I have a small one like this for my mini mya, it is solid black and you can barely see the water when held to the light. You actually have to stare for awhile to see it.

from what i understand there isnt a set KM vase. they just get generic bases and slap them on the stem and then that makes it a km vase.

I can say that I have never seen a KM style jar that is black in color. The closest I have seen are the KM vases that have the black colored cellophane type stuff to make the vase look translucent black, more of a gunsmoke actually. (EDIT: Aww snap, I found one by temsaah)

This vase is black with mostly silver motif http://www.hookahstore.com/accessori...base-p-86.html , not bad.

here is what I see picture as the base you want. I would call HookahCompany up and ask about getting it separately, they are an absolute delight to deal with in my experience.

The one from hookah store is what I currently have, and the silver paint makes it so when the water level rises up to it, you can't see anything.

the one at hookahcompany might be right, but it looks like the same one that John has. I emailed him and asked him if it was translucent or not and he said negative.
