Default difficulties with new hookah

i got my 34" km classic today but i cannot get it to smoke right at all.

im using the egyptian bowl that came with it, ice water in base, and 1 layer of reynolds standard foil.

using CH Naturals, 2 of them at a time.

when i put 3 it burns, when i put a windcover it burns, without a windcover i barely get any smoke just abunch of cold air that dries the back of my throat.

my water is at a good level, and im doing everything the same as i did with my 12" chinese, just not working.

ill keep trying different stuff but figured id go ahead and ask if there was anything i should do differently ??(besides buy a vortex or phunnel, which i will do within the next week or so.)

You would be surprised. It makes a big difference and recently I learned that the difference can be as complex as some may require it and others may not. nature of the variety of the tobaccos I suppose.
