Bridge Aquila Purple Dragon custom model
Out of stock
New from Bridge UK, this Purple Dragon Aquila is their 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 Aquila, with a noticeably stronger output and more brilliance on the high strings, without treble harshness. The Purple Dragons were originally available only in this gorgeous metallic purple to black fade.
This "hi-spec" custom Purple Dragon Aquila 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 Aquila 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 Purple Dragon really shines. We already love the sound of the standard Bridge models, yet this Aquila 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 Aquila 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. Originally only available one finish, this Purple Dragon is a gorgeous metallic purple fading to black at the edges. This is a true purple, rich and saturated, closer in appearance to the purple metallic that was so popular that it was almost a company trademark for Bridge five years ago. Tuning is a breeze with the Wittner Finetune pegs, nearly making the fine tuners built into the Wittner composite tailpiece obsolete. The price of the Purple Dragon includes the same custom hard shell case and carbon composite bow that comes with standard Bridge models.
