Bridge Lyra Dragon custom model, Steel
The Dragon Lyra is Bridge UK's custom "hi-spec" model, 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 Lyra, with a noticeably stronger output and more brilliance on the high strings, without treble harshness. This Steel Dragon has a rich, lustrous sheen, like a brushed aluminum or steel finish.
This "hi-spec" custom Steel Dragon Lyra from Bridge Violins in the UK sports several upgrades from the standard model. 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 Dragon Lyra sounded noticeably better than the standard Bridge 5-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 Dragon 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. This Steel Dragon Lyra is sleek and classy, with a rich and lustrous silver-gray metallic finish finish that's nearly (but not quite) reflective like a chrome finish -- think brushed steel (or aluminum), instead. 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 Steel Dragon Lyra includes the same custom hard shell case and carbon composite bow that comes with standard Bridge models.
