Bridge Aquila Dragon custom model, Gold Onyx

Availability: In stock

$2,595.00
This gorgeous Dragon Aquila from Bridge Instruments, UK is finished in their unusual Silver Onyx custom color. To us, it looks more gold than silver, with a striking and attractive textured finish. The Dragons are Bridge's "hi-spec" custom models, equipped with Wittner Finetune geared pegs and upgraded electronics that use two coin-cell batteries. We found the instrument's tone better balanced across the instrument's range than the standard Aquila, with a noticeably stronger output and more brilliance on the high strings, without treble harshness.

This "hi-spec" custom Dragon Aquila from Bridge Violins in the UK sports several upgrades from the standard model, built in the Far East. With upgraded electronics and Wittner Finetune pegs, this is the Aquila for players who are willing to make a bigger investment in an instrument of greater quality.

First and foremost, it's always about tone, and this is where the Aquila Dragon really shines. We already love the sound of the standard Bridge models, yet this Aquila sounded noticeably better than the standard Bridge 4-string we tested it against. Immediate first impressions were of the instrument's stronger output, but what really stood out and stayed with us was the beautiful balance of its tone. This Aquila has much more brilliance on the high strings, exhibiting a sparkle and clarity of tone with a notable absence of the harshness that sometimes plagues the violin's upper register when it's amplified.

While the Dragons were initially only offered in the trademark Bridge deep purple, this instrument is finished in their distinctive Silver Onyx custom color. We think its predominant tones are more gold than silver, but we love the look of this finish, with its textured mix of colors and tones. It has a bit in common with their marble finishes, but is uniquely its own thing, with a look that brings to mind antique metals.

Tuning is a breeze with the Wittner Finetune pegs, nearly making the fine tuners built into the Wittner composite tailpiece obsolete.
