Mya is a good brand name. Dunno which one you got for $250 but it should be decent. Enjoy your new hookah dude.

It is a mix of both. It has the base from the nile and the stem form the bohemian.

Many vendors do this a lot so don't worry, it is still a MYA

Ummmm.... Maybe. I'm sure caus eit was a shop they jacked up the price. But it'll last a long ass time so no need to worry. In the time you have to buy 2 normal hookahs you will still have your Mya.
It's a tank man.
Watch out for the glass though. The slightest event could break that shit.

Yeah I agree. Make sure you do not do sudden tempurature changes when cleaning or filling up the base with water. (ex. hot water to cold)

If you do that, your base will most likely crack and break right in your hands

It's the Obelisk. I have one in black. Same stem.
It's a great smokin' rig. The hoses, although good, are a tad restrictive so I'd suggest getting a Namoor or Razan hose and a phunnel bowl.

I can't see the pics, but if it cost $250, I'm sure you'll be more than happy with it. You obviously have one of their higher end models (which are the best to have IMO), but I think the price is a little steep. You could've problaby had it cheaper through one of the online vendors. Regardless, you shouldn't feel the need to buy another hookah any time soon or at all...

Now, on the hose. DO NOT wash the Mya hose. Even though Mya claims the Cloisonne hose to be washable, in reality it's not. The Mya Cloisonne hose that came with my Mya 30 inch Blue Column, ended up rusting from the inside only after a couple of months of use. I had never ran water through it or anything. It rusted on it's own from outside humidity.

My advice would be to get yourself a Nammour Hose. It's 100% safe to wash and won't rust since it's not made of the same material as most other hoses on the inside. It's $20, but it's most problaby the last hose you'll ever have to purchase. Trust me, it's no fun inhaling bits and pieces of rust during a session. You should problaby look into it as soon as you can. Your Mya hose will problaby last you a while without rusting, but eventually it will. It's not a matter of if, but when...

That's what I do with mine. Wash it with water and blow air through the hoses when I'm through.

I just run hot water through my hookahs, and it cleans them just fine. Don't forget to use the thin brush which should have come with it to clean the stem, and the wide brush to clean the base.

The ball bearing thingy, is actually a purge valve. It's there so that if your session begins to get harsh, you canblow into the hose and clear out the chamber of harsh smoke. This works more effectively on other hookahs such as egyptians and Syrians. On Mya's, the way they're designed, the purge valave won't clear all of the smoke in the chamber. Just about half of it.

Once you get the hang of it though, you shouldn't need to worry about the session getting harsh. That's pretty much something you can prevent all together by making sure you rotate the coals every so often. And also by making sure you have good coals and shisha. You also have to pack it right, because packing it the wrong way can also potetntially cause harshness.

Go to the following links for intructions on how to properly set up a hookah:

Edit: sorry if my spelling is crappy, I'm tired...
