Default My new hookah came today.

I'm very pleased with my new hookah, I haven't smoked out of it yet though, maybe tomorrow. Here are some pictures of it. It's from dirtcheaphookahs.com, it's 26 inches tall and it cost me $30.00 ($36.00 with shipping). It came with two rolls of quick lights, grommets for hose, vase, and bowl, a standard Mya hose, and a large Egyptian bowl, and they gave me 30 coco easy-lights for free. Great service

For 30 bucks that doesn't look like that bad of a hookah. Enjoy it. Looks like it might be a good little...um...medium hookah you have there

i know I've been reading your posts. I didn't have the hose problem that you had, my hose was perfect, no metal smell in it. I do have the gunk in the stem from the manufacturing process, ran water through it but it still didn't come out and I don't have any brushes so idk what I'm gonna do haha. But I hope you figure out what's wrong with yours soon.

Dude that was a good deal. I like that base a lot!

Try to soak the stem in hot water, maybe that'll get the gunk out.

Also, make sure you check if it's air tight. Put it together, leave the bowl off and place your hand over where the bowl connects to the stem. Then pull and if you can't get anything through, it's airtight.

Thanks for the tip on soaking it in water, that may help. I did test to see if it is air-tight. To my luck it is :P

yeah i sent an email to dirtcheap about the hose problem. They told me it was actually the smell of the synthetic leather and just break it in and itll be fine. First few purges tasted like crap but afterwards it went away.

Also, I use a big ol' appliance brush that barely fits my stem. Maybe you can find one of those at WalMart or something....
It's kinda like this one, but not exactly:

As a cheap alternative to a brush I wound up using a coat hanger that I unfolded, cut up a scourge pad into strips and wrapped the hanger around. Worked pretty well for a bit but if you can get a brush soon, even if it is a crappy little one where the thistles come out with every use that is your best route.

Judging by the stemwork it is chinese. It is machine made and doesn't have any visual flaws that would signal hand made egyptians. The tray is incredibly similar to a friend's of mine which is a Super Hookah I believe. So that is your best bet.

You generally can tell if it's handmade due to little things like weld scorch marks and the tray is pressed with designs. But if your tray is the same as the one in the pictures I would assume it is a Super Hookah because I have never seen a tray like that otherwise.

If you see a KM in the future you will definitely not be disappointed. They got to be the go to for everyone here for a reason! Plus IMO they show sophistication lol. Kinda gives other people around you a sign that you like other cultures traditions and could make for some interesting conversations

Try letting some lemon juice sit in there or baking soda that should wipe out the gunk

Good buy, I jope you enjoy it. Would advise you clean the stem out properly before smoking out of it.

Let us know how it smokes. It kind of looks like the new Sahara Smoke stems
