Bridge Aquila Dragon custom model, Barrier Reef finish

Availability: Out of stock

This gorgeous Dragon Aquila from Bridge Instruments, UK is finished in the beautiful Barrier Reef custom color. 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 Barrier Reef 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 beautiful Barrier Reef custom color. A burst of pearlescent colors, Barrier Reef ranges from a medium seafoam green at the center to a darker royal blue metallic at the edges, with hints of purple when the light hits the darker blue from certain angles. It's a striking color, and it's been a favorite of Electric Violin Shop's customers.

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

The price of this Barrier Reef Aquila Dragon includes the same custom hard shell case and carbon composite bow that comes with standard Bridge models.

  1. This violin exceeded all my expectations! Review by Q

    I purchased my Bridge Aquila Dragon in September and since then, I have had the chance to play it in several different venues. It sounded beautiful in all of them. I often avoided the upper positions on my old electric violin. But I love the warm tones of this Bridge Dragon, especially in the upper positions. I have never had so many complements on my playing. The purchasing process was simple and efficient. The violin came to me all set up and ready to play. I would absolutely recommend this violin and EVS. I look forward to purchasing from them again.

  2. Winning Combination: EVS and Bridge! Review by Sky

    Words cannot describe how fantastic Chris, Ted and Susie are or how incredible an instrument is the Bridge Dragon !
    I spent a month researching, I asked over a million questions and I even tried an Electric (from EVS) before purchasing the Bridge Dragon Aquila.
    Everyone was helpful beyond the call of duty and all promises made were kept...Super people. And the Dragon was everything that they said it would be. Excellent tone and quality, strong-bodied, sounds more acoustic than electric and it is esthetically beautiful. It even came with a case and bow.
    I could not be more pleased. If you are thinking of buying an electric violin you can't do better than EVS and Bridge. (Posted on 6/10/14)
