Garlinger Batons offers four baton types of batons:

  1. ErgonomicShapely and curved, Ergonomic Batons are molded to your hand with multiple points for finger placement. Choose an ergonomic conducting baton if you are looking for a baton that will mold to your hand as though it has always been there. This shape will conform to you rather than asking that you conform to it.
  2. PearThe Pear Conducting Baton is skinny at the handle with a round ball at the end. This shape is best suited for conductors who prefer the bulk of the weight of the handle in their palm.
  3. Ergonomic PearThe Ergonomic Pear Handle is a mashup of two different styles, and Adam’s current favorite shape! He loves to experiment with different grips and conducting techniques, so he designed a shape that would be comfortable for several different style holds. If you prefer to hold the change, the handle, or further up the shaft this baton will feel great!
  4. TraditionalIt's the shape that you know and love! Our Traditional conducting baton shape is smooth as it transitions from the shaft to the end of the handle. This shape can suit any grip, while also giving room to showcase the beautiful color of the handle.
  5. Chamber LengthChamber Length Batons are shorter in length than others, usually under 12 inches long. These batons are optimized for smaller ensembles, tighter spaces, or rehearsals.
