Sinuous and bold, the lines of the Draco cello beg to be stared at. This is a cello that feels like "home" to a classical player, while envisioning the idea of an electric cello that's as much an art object as it is a cellist's cello.
Designed by Bridge instruments in the UK, the Draco cello is an amazingly affordable, great-sounding electric cello has all the traditional reference points of your acoustic instrument, but looks sleek and modern enough for any amplified setting.
The body is molded from a carbon fiber/Kevlar® composite that provides amazing durability for the traveling cellist. The sinuous, modern shape of the Draco manages to look radical while feeling quite natural to classically-trained cellist -- all of the physical reference points of the acoustic cello are preserved.
The Bridge Draco cello looks every bit as good as it sounds! The semi-hollow design gives the Draco some acoustic resonance, and the built-in preamp gives you volume and tone controls on-board. Dark, rich tones accurately recreate the range of the cello, with just a bit of edginess to remind you that this is an electric cello.
Paired with the right amplifier, you can easily play any acoustic style of music, from bluegrass and Celtic to country or gypsy jazz. When you're ready to rock, the Draco cello is up to the task -- it works great with high-gain effects, with almost no instance of feedback, in spite of the acoustic resonance of the semi hollow-body design. And as far as looks go, the Draco has stage presence to spare.
