The Conduct-o-matic

The Conduct-o-matic

Attention: orchestra personnel managers! Is your symphony hemorrhaging money? Are ticket sales down and expenses up? Can you no longer afford a first-tier Kapellmeister? Dinklaker Industries can help. Our amazing Conduct-o-matic® provides accurate batonsmanship at a fraction of the cost of employing a professional conductor. It never miscues an entrance, its ictus is always precise, and it runs on ordinary D cells (sold separately). With its optional voice-activation software, it can even respond reasonably to queries from querulous instrumentalists – without ever losing its cool. And for modern scores that feature complex polyrhythms, the Conduct-o-matic® can beat up to three different tempi at the same time! So stop sinking money into baton-wielding prima donnas. Invest in a Conduct-o-matic® from Dinklaker Industries and invest in your orchestra’s future!
