Bridge Lyra Dragon custom model, Cherry Red Pearl
This cherry-red beauty is hot enough to keep you warm this winter. 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've 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 any treble harshness.
This "hi-spec" custom Cherry Red Pearl Lyra Dragon 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 Lyra 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 Lyra Dragon really shines. We already love the sound of the standard Bridge models, yet this Lyra 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 Lyra 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 a beautiful Cherry Red Pearl custom color. Lighter than the Bordeaux Pearl we had a while back, this saturated red metallic really pops under stage lights. It's a bright, gorgeous red for those that are true lovers of the scarlet hues, made warmer and more striking by the pearlescent mica flakes that reflect by sparks of red. 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 Cherry Red Pearl Lyra Dragon includes the same custom hard shell case and carbon composite bow that comes with standard Bridge models.
