So, I've been friends with the guys at Mya for many years now. They get a lot of complaints from folks about hookahs they have purchased, only to ask that pictures be sent of the offending hookah. They say 9 out of 10 times, its not actually a Mya Saray. So how do you spot a real Mya if you are not very familiar with the brand? They stamp MYA on their hookahs in 2-3 different places depending on the year and model.
1) The Tray should have MYA stamped on it.
2) The Stem should have MYA stamped on it. This stamp may be big or small, but it will be there.
3) The newer Mya hookahs will also have MYA stamped/printed somewhere on the glass base. (Don't have a picture of that to show you yet, but look for it.)
