This Dragon Aquila from Bridge Instruments, UK is finished in a shimmering copper pearl custom color, a truly striking metallic shade. 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 is the Bridge Aquila model 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 Bridge violins, yet this Dragon model 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. Now available in a variety of custom colors, this Dragon Aquila is finished in a shimmery, reflective copper pearl custom color. The metallic and mica flakes mixed in with the color give this instrument a lustrous appearance and a wonderful depth of color. In indoor (especially fluorescent) lighting, this violin can look pale orange or apricot, but in direct sunlight, or under bright stage lights, the copper pearl really catches fire. Tuning is a breeze with the Wittner Finetune pegs, nearly making the fine tuners built into the Wittner composite tailpiece obsolete. The price of the Emerald Green Pearl Aquila Dragon includes the same custom hard shell case and carbon composite bow that comes with standard Bridge models.
