For the price of this little guy, they are fantastic. I would highly recommend one of these for anyone who is just starting with hookahs. I love mine and I give it a two thumbs up


Agreed.
Got mine used from a friend for $20, now i'm just experimenting with tobacco flavors.
works great!

Purchased the Mya QT from Hookah Shisha



Yeah I picked pink, I am a man. Plus I bought this for my wife.

This little powerhouse maybe the smoothest smoke for such a small hookah. Bambino base design is a for a powerhouse of smoke, but the QT is Super smooth. Smoked this bad boy for several hours. There is a small leak on one of the glass seams but H-S is sending out a replacement and should be hear tomorrow. Won't be surprised if I get another one of these for parites. This one is a huge 10/10 for me. No wonder Mushrat uses these for his shop. Small, Smooth, Easy to clean and you really have to want to knock this over to even tip this thing. Going to order 2 Autoseal Adapters to make turn it into a 2 hose when I feel like it.

Rating: 10/10 Such an amazing little hookah, great for travel, smoking at home, Amazing little hookah. Definitely sugget this one for newbies not wanting to spend a bunch to get started.

I just got one, and I love it already. One thing I haven't seen mentioned is that you can smoke it right in the cage. You just assemble it in the cage, and you can carry it around no problem, and it is very stable. Perhaps the hole in the top of the cage is a new addition, I'm not sure. Perhaps they changed the purge valve too, because I think mine purges great. I would highly recommend it.

you know, I was thinking about that the other day.

I am going to jump on the Mya QT is great train also.

My absolute favorite part is the stability. Definitely a winner.

I've had the Mya QT for a couple months now. I decided to go with this model after reading all of the reviews on the forum. I purchased the two hose version from Hookah-Shisha.

Unfortunately, I haven't been able to smoke from it as much as I'd like...lol, damn my schedule! But I have been pretty impressed with the QT so far.

I'm still perfecting my technique but I've gotten good smokes out of Al Fahker with a small chinese phunnel, homemade glass scalli, heavy duty Reynolds Wrap foil, very many very small holes all over, cold water halfway up the base, and the coconut coals from Hookah Company.

The auto-seal feature is pretty cool on the hose adapter. I don't use it on my hose so that I can purge the base in case of harsh smoke or whatever...but it's nice on the other hose so that I don't have to remind others to plug their hose all the time.

Everything comes apart very easily and cleans easily with hot water. I have to give props to the phunnel bowl tho for preventing the juices from going down the stem....def an improvement over the standard bowl. It also is much taller and looks awesome on the QT....can't wait for my mini-phunnel!!

The carrying cage is pretty convenient...I can fit everything into my backpack easily and safely for a night out.

I only have one gripe.....there's bubbles in the glass and one side of the bottom corner looks very thin. I'm just very careful with it but I do get nervous that I might hit the corner just wrong and break the glass. So far so good, we'll see...

Overall, I'd recommend the QT to anyone who's starting out like me or wants something portable.

Mya Saray QT


Okay, so I recently bought a Mya QT off MNH among other things, i got dark blue. Here's my review of this little champ!

Appearance : First impression. Small. This thing is a gnome! For such a short little hookah, it still looks sexy as hell, especially that gorgeous stem! The base is so so, air bubbles here and there but they're only noticeable when you take a good hard look at the base. My base came with a crack or more like a chip on the upper part of the base, where the stem meets.

Functionality : This hookah smokes like a champ! Very easy pull from the get go, and when paired with a Razan/Nammor hose (YES! The hose adapters are even wide enough for Nammors/Razans to fit in!) you can get maximum amount of pull and produce large clouds of smoke as eye candy. Air tightness of this hookah is exceptional, when assembled, the stem and base are sealed very well (it took me a minute of careful pulling and wiggling to remove the stem from the base). The water level on this hookah takes a little more time to get right, water level too high and you will definitely get water in your hose. Since the stem is an open chamber, the purging doesn't work very well, it removes some of the smoke but does not clear out the whole base. The ashtray of this hookah is also a problem, it's too small. When the coals are placed on the outer edge of my medium phunnel bowl, not all the falling ash are caught by the ashtray, would like it too be bigger.

Price : Yes, it is pricey for a small hookah. But paying $45 for a hookah that can definitely outlive you, your grandchildren and your great grand children is not such a bad thing.

Overall : I am in love with this hookah, it smokes extremely well and looks the part as well. And being able to turn this hookah into a two hose setup is really convenient! I give it a 9/10, -1 for small ashtray. And now for some pics!

QT in action. Phunnel bowl and 2 cocos on top.


Pic of base. Notice the ashes on the table? Yeah, ashtray is too small.


Top view of phunnel with the ashtray, they are almost the same width. Little space for the ashes to fall on.


Closer look at stem. Notice at the bottom in the middle of the pic, you can see the chip or crack of the base.


EDIT : More Pics!

Inside of the stem, it is brass cored.



A look at the chip on my base, only an aesthetic problem though.

Compared to the big boys, this is about half the price. but i really like the smoke out of it. i have only smoked out of 5 different hookahs and only one was a "big boy" and this smoked better than the 3 other little ones, and it is just behind if not equal to the big one.

i absolutely love it



First smoke smile.gif it was a bit chilly but it was a great smoke being my first set up

packed my first bowl, testing how many coals to put on (CH QL's)

I wish I went with that color. Instead I picked up the blue. Oh well...


MYA QT

Hookah Shisha order.

Stability - 10/10: This little guy is as stable as they get, with a large flat bottom base it doesn't go anywhere. The cage isn't flimsy at all either.

Build Quality - 9/10: Although I love this little guy. Mine suffers from the same as most of them. Looks like the glass work on the base is thicker on one side then the other. This doesn't have any kind of performance flaw to it. It is just noticeable if you scan your base. Which nobody really does that often unless cleaning.

Smoke Session - 10/10: This little champ smokes better then most of the big guys. I've made sure to wait on this review till after I tried at least 6 other hookahs and I got to say this guy is a champ. Better then the Egyptian, Chinese mods and even one KM I've smoked from.

Cleaning - 10/10: Easy to disassemble, easy to clean. All the little nick knacks are nice and easy to clean up and the base is an easy shape to get the corners in. My only complaint isn't with this hookah it's with H-S who didn't ship a cleaning brush. Which I was hoping to get since I don't have one for the down-stem.

Modability - 10/10: Great little guy and still takes all the extras well! I have added a Nammor Hose, Heba Diffuser and switch out the bowl to a Medium Phunnel every now and then. Takes them all perfectly except the phunnel, for obvious reasons.

Travel - 10/10: I take this little guy everywhere! The little cage holds it perfectly! You just pop off the handle to take the QT in and out then pop it back on and off you go!

Price - 10/10: At $50 for the 2 hose you can't beat that. I just wish I went with Stuie's color instead of the blue. It still looks fantastic though.

Overall - 10: Easily the best buy I've done so far.

Okay, I've had several hookahs. Started with a crappy Inhale hookah(didn't we all?), then went with the Mya QT, then an Al Fakher Small Solid 24", and then finally a KM OG Trimetal. I sold the KM thinking I was going to quit. Couldn't resist getting back into it, though. Figured I'd start back out small, so I went with what I already knew worked well for a good price- the Mya QT. Ordered this one from HookahJohn, our beloved vendor.

Aight, so with my first QT (black vase, two hose) I was still learning and didn't quite know what I was doing. I feel as though I never pushed that QT to its full potential. Most sessions were harsh, which I now believe was because of my packing method and because of the included Mya bowl. This new QT, however, has been nothing but amazing... Let me go into detail:

I ordered the QT, royal blue vase, one-hose, with a blue/black small Tangiers phunnel, 84-count box of Coconaras, and two 250g's of Nak Mizo- guava and watermelon. Figured this would be good to get me back off the ground running without breaking the bank. Now, I believe the Tangiers phunnel helps the QT smoke better (duh). I have had nothing but perfect sessions, with big clouds (of course not like my KM put out, but more like the size of clouds I got with my AF 24" I had). I've got a blue mini Nammor and extra hose port (so I can make it two-hose) on the way from Hookah-Shisha. I'm hoping the Nammor will allow me to achieve even bigger clouds.

The QT I had before came with one regular hose adapter, the purge valve, and two auto-seal hose adapters. When a friend joined me, I set it up with both auto-seals on, and when solo I set it up with the regular adapter and purge. I wasn't impressed with the auto-seals. The ball bearings would constantly get stuck, and it really got on my and my friends' nerves. This is why I just got a regular adapter this time when I set up my QT for two-hosing. I'd rather plug the hoses than have the ball bearings stick all the time. My friends (and I) usually plug out of habit anyway.

As for the purge, it sucked on my old one and works great (so far) on this new one. I'm quite impressed. I was expecting it to suck because I remembered how it was on my old one, and because how everyone on here and their mom talks about how the QT's purge sucks.

I'm very happy with this QT. I chalk up my bad experiences with the last one to user error due to my lack of experience at that time. It puts out clouds *almost* in size to what I was getting with my old KM. For me this is pretty damn good for such a small hookah.

Why are you still reading this? Head over to HookahJohn or Hookah-Shisha and order one already!

Rating: 10/10 Perfect!



Also want to add... I really like the tongs that are included. They are easy to handle and look nice. I don't like the standard alligator-teeth tongs and I used to have the fancy Syrian bird tongs. The bird tongs were a hassle because the little slider thing would move, closing the tongs when I wanted them as open as possible. Anyway, I really like these Mya tongs. Best tongs, I think, I've ever used. Edited by delSol_si

UPDATE WITH NAMMOR HOSE:



The Nammor hose really adds to the draw on this little guy. I'm most impressed. Draw is now almost effortless, and I get even more smoke. Can you say BIG-ASS CLOUDS? I'd say they are 2/3 or 3/4 as big as what I was getting with my KM OG Trimetal. Not bad, not bad at all...

In my personal honest opinion, this is the best valued hookah for your money. Whether you're just starting out or have been smoking for 10+ years, this is an awesome hookah for anybody. You won't be disappointed. High quality, I hear it will last years. Smokes great. What can go wrong?

Also, if you have trouble with the purge valve, open that sucker up (the cap part of the purge comes off with a little force) and replace the metal ball bearing with a plastic BB. I haven't had to do this yet, but I'm getting some BB's just in case, as I've heard from many people that theirs over time the ball bearing has gotten stuck and they've had to do this.

I really enjoy this hookah. If you are looking for something very portable, sturdy, incredibly easy to clean, and cheap ,then this is for you. The thing that struck me the most is how quiet it is. It barely makes any noise when you inhale on it. I love the bowl size, perfect for a single smoke session with a couple of Coconaras or CH coals. The travel cage is excellent as well. Another plus is that the chrome on it is really shiny (if that's your thing), which makes for a pleasent looking hookah. For the price, it's definitely worth it especially for something that comes from China. On a 1-10 scale I give it a 9.5.

The one thing I didn't like about it was the fact that the bowl isn't glazed on the inside. That makes it so the bowl gets stained. Other than that, I love it.

These are phenomenal hookahs for mini's. Great little smokes, perfect for solo sessions. Nothing fancy on mine just an ice blue vase and a standard leather hose with a standard bowl. Nice design, easy to set up and clean and airtight. This was my first hookah and still my favorite next to my Egyptian. I would recommend this hookah to anyone just starting out or if your looking for a worthy smoker that's easy to carry. 8 out of 10 stars for this one.

Here's my review of the Mya QT:

Mya Saray is know for their exceptionally well built hookahs, and the QT is no exception. Standing at 14 inches tall, the QT smokes better than a lot of the taller hookahs, providing smooth pulls of smoke, and ease of use.



Many hookah smokers are looking for something portable and reliable, and the QT provides just that. The hookah is built like a tank, and pulls smoke better than many of the larger more expensive hookahs, so this is perfect for beginners or regular users looking for a quality hookah at low cost.

The base of the QT is crown shaped, coming in a variety of colors such as green, blue, red, orange, gray, and even pink. The shape of the base allows for easy cleaning and access, and supports the hookah very well. Unlike most hookahs, the base grommet is on the base instead of the stem. The seal around the base is ribbed and allows for a very strong connection between the base and the stem.

[url="http://www.hookah-shisha.com/p-184-mya-qt-1-hose-hookah.html?idaffiliate=827"][img]http://www.hookahreviews.net/wp-content/uploads/2010/07/myaqtbases.png[/img][/url]

The stem on the QT is very durable and feels very solid. The stem can be tough to clean without cleaning brushes due to it's shape and size, but many have no issues properly cleaning the stem between uses.

The ash catcher tray on the QT is quite small, and is held in place by the bowl grommet, and does not snap on, which is the main complaint of many owners. Due to the size of the try you must be careful not to knock the coal off the top of the bowl, because most likely it will not catch the coal, but it does work well for catching ash.

The hose that is included with the QT is 72″ in length, and is washable, which is a huge plus since many hoses are not washable. The hose is very durable and very flexible, allowing for ease of use during your smoking session and should easily last the life of your hookah.

The bowl included with the QT is a standard ceramic bowl. Depending on the retailer you purchase it from, it will either come with a matching colored bowl, or a standard black or brown bowl, it varies from store to store.

Overall the Mya Saray QT hookah is one of the most portable and durable hookahs around, and it's low cost and ease of use makes it perfect for anyone looking to purchase a new hookah.

Working at a hookah bar we retail pipes. This is the model and pipe that we sell the most of, and we have a few of these pipes in our repertoire. Occasionally there are cracks in the glass, but the stem has always been made well. I think that these pipes smoke very well and are some of the best deals on the market.

I only have a few complaints:

First, like all mya pipes, they have a sphere which is very hard to clean.

Second, the base is a little annoying to fill up. It's tough to figure out the perfect level of water to fill, and the shape of the base slips hands etc
