Bridge Lyra Dragon custom model, "Steampunk" model
This unusual Dragon Lyra from Bridge Instruments in the UK is hand-finished with an eclectic mix of steampunk elements, for a one-of-kind look that's like no other. Covered in gears and clock faces, with a "scroll" formed of furled dragon wings and a blue glass bead, this "Steampunk" model 5-string Lyra is definitely a show-stopper.
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.
