Jay Weinberg's 908 is in between a 5A and 5B for a comfortable grip. It adds 1/4" length for some added reach and a quick taper for a slight forward throw but with a fast response. The medium sized barrel tip delivers a defined ride cymbal tone without lacking volume to cut through while putting out full drum tones. All these elements make the 908 a great stick for playing at both medium to high tempos with fast fills and for also more straight ahead rock, groove playing. Sharpen your rhythm with the 908.
