Great tone, striking style, and flexibility - What more can you ask for? The Bridge Aquila is built so that critical measurements conform to those of a standard acoustic violin, so it feels natural to play. The neck and fingerboard are made just like your acoustic violin's, with traditional materials and construction. The body is anything but traditional - molded from a composite of carbon fiber and Kevlar, it's not much heavier than an acoustic violin, while being incredibly strong. (Don't try this at home, but Bridge once hit one of their basses with a sledgehammer without breaking it!)
Power for the active pre amp is supplied by a single 3V lithium coin-cell battery, which weighs virtually nothing, yet will last for approximately 1,000 hours of playing time.
The lava red Aquila has a unique finish -- a gold mica-flake coat over a solid red yields a color that can present as solid red or red-orange in low-light or fluorescent lighting. In intense stage light, the mica flake sparkles with warmth, pushing the color closer to orange or even gold, and shifting as the angle, color temperature, and intensity of the light changes. In direct sunlight, it's absolutely brilliant!
The Bridge Aquila violin comes with an oblong hard case, Pirastro Tonica strings and a carbon composite bow. Price includes our free shop adjustment.
