The N-EF 8 is similar in construction to the N-EF 2 model but the head is heavier and rounder, so this tipper has more presence and an earthier click, producing an overall more rounded tone and deeper bass and stimulates a variety of natural vibrations. Due to its light design, the tipper can be used with little or no exertion to produce powerful, dynamic playing, yet it is also wonderful for for soft playing with very little click. Of course the grip is designed to handle very comfortably regardless of your playing style or preferred grip.
As with the other split tippers, the flanks curve slightly inward to prevent them becoming uneven, and the edges are smoothed so as not to damage your drum head. Diameter is 13 mm and 12 mm, length 24 cm, and weight approx. 18 grams.
