This 5 string Bridge Lyra Dragon Octave electric violin is finished in Illusion Purple/Green -- a unique custom finish that shifts colors like a dragonfly's wings! From paler purple and green to silver and shades in between, the ever-changing palette of this instrument is hypnotizing.
Equipped with Sensicore's Octave strings, the Lyra Octave Dragon from Bridge, has a more-powerful, two-battery preamp that, like the preamp in the regular Lyra Octave, is specially designed to accurately emphasize the lower frequencies, bringing the range and repertoire of the cello into the reach of the violinist. When played clean through a good acoustic amplifier, the Lyra Octave Dragon's tone is more powerful than the Lyra Octave, but still amazingly cello-like.
Like all of Bridge's 5-strings, the Octave Dragon Lyra is built so that critical measurements 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 body is anything but traditional - molded from a composite of carbon fiber and Kevlar, not much heavier than an acoustic violin, while being incredibly strong. (Don't try this at home, but Bridge once hit one of their basses with a sledgehammer without breaking it!).
Power for the active preamp 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.
Includes heavy duty rectangular case with attached cover, custom fit to the shape of the Lyra violin, and a carbon composite black metallic bow.
Full shop setup included at no additional charge. Among other things, this includes insuring that the pegs (often sticky!) function smoothly.
