Great tone, striking appearance, and comfort-- 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!)
This particular Bridge Aquila is finished with the subtly beautiful Black Marble Ghost finish, giving it the look of a gloss black base coat, with a bronze metallic rag-rolled finish for a top coat. It's not as overtly flashy as some of the other marble finishes from Bridge, but when the light hits it just so, the Black Marble Ghost is a real show-stopper.
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 Bridge Aquila violin comes with an oblong hard case, Pirastro Tonica strings and a carbon composite bow. Price includes our free shop adjustment.
