Most people think of a baton as utilitarian in appearance and function. That is not the case.
For over 60 years, King David Conductor Batons have been the baton of choice for literally thousands of conductors. Symphony conductors, bandleaders and choral directors specifically request the baton because it is consistent in quality, balance and weight. Conductors also experience less fatigue with King David Batons due to their extremely light weight and balance.
The baton length is measured from end to end - that is, total length = length of shaft + length of handle
