Great tone, striking style, and flexibility -- what more can you ask for? The critical measurements of the Bridge Aquila 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 Bridge Aquila violin will hold your traditional shoulder pad, yet the body is anything but traditional. It is molded from a composite of carbon fiber and Kevlar, is not much heavier than an acoustic violin, and is 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 preamp 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 Bridge Aquila violin comes with an oblong hard case, Pirastro Tonica strings and a carbon composite bow. Price includes our free shop adjustment.

Great instrument and great international customer service! Review by Morné
This is such a beautiful instrument, I am extremely satisfied with the red marble colour. The violin comes with a very high quality case, which I have not expected. The bow included is well balanced and of good quality. My current KUN shoulder rest fits perfectly and do not slip. I do recommend that one uses an angled-1/4'' jack cable at the violin's input. A normal straight jack tends to cause a bit of discomfort. Sound quality is very good and "feels" a lot like an acoustic violin. Aesthetically... WOW, you can not go wrong!
Susie, thank you very much for your awesome customer service. I am impressed beyond words! The hand-written note within the violin-case gave a personal touch to your customer service. I will recommend you to all in South Africa... The whole transaction was a smooth experience with excellent tracking and fast shipping.
I wish you and your family well and may your company be blessed beyond your wildest dreams.
Greetings from sunny South Africa! (Posted on 3/23/15)
Great place to shop Review by Howard
I had a great experience with this store and with this fiddle. I was dealing with a salesperson named Susie was very knowledgeable and helpful. We were in touch by email several times before I bought this fiddle and another one, because they have a 30 day try and buy policy (which is just great). I am going to get a shoulder rest from them next, and I highly recommend both this store, and the Bridge Aquila which is a Monster! (Posted on 7/23/14)
