Great tone, striking style, and flexibility - what more can you ask for? The Bridge 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. We also replace the Chinese knock-offs with genuine Wittner composite tailpieces, to prevent failure of the fine tuners further down the road.
