ABOUT US

DESIGN, PASSION AND CRAFTSMANSHIP


Giannidarco Batons are designed and built from passion for music and wood. Only the best materials are used, with respect for nature and selected with care. The wood for the handles of the batons is selected in
accordance with the CITES (convention on the International Trade of Endangered Species )standard.

"Craftmanship is mastery" is our motto. Dutch quality, super solid. A baton is the magical link between a conductor and
performing musicians, therefore each Giannidarco Baton is hand crafted. Each Baton that leaves the Giannidarco firm, has been tested on balance and if necessary a counter weight is placed.
The shafts are being tested randomly on a break test machine for fracture toughness.

Giannidarco Batons are made in the standard dimensions: 12", 14", 15" and 16". Ofcourse, customization and other dimensions are always a possibility.
Shafts can be ordered in a selection of materials, i.e. wood, massive glassfiber, hollow carbon en massive carbon.
The shafts will be finished with a two-component lacquer, or with a water soluble lacquer and protected with a clear coating.

Ergonomics play an important role in my designs. In my profession as an orchestra musician I know from experience how
important good ergonomics are to avoid physical problems such as RSI; Carpal tunnel syndrome etc.

Giannidarco Batons have been tested by conductors of the Dutch Military Music Orchestras / Big Band and were thereby
exposed to a great diversity of conditions. In theatres, concert halls but also in extreme weather conditions while carrying out ceremonial appearances for the royal family; international tattoos; at the barracks. All over the world.
If sun, rain, wind or frost, Giannidarco Batons have proven to be resistant to all types of weather.
The batons come with a one year warranty period at normal usage.

REPAIR

Our workshop offers you various repair and maintenance works, such as replacement of a broken shaft or refinishing handles by applying new lacquer or oil.
Giannidarco Batons are usually finished with shellack, other lacquers, oil or wax.

Your purchase of a Giannidarco Custom Baton guarantees a product of high quality!
