Somebody call 911 -- the 'Glowing Embers' finish on this Bridge Aquila Dragon is hot, hot, hot! This fiery beauty has a marbled finish that shifts from golden amber in the center to flame-bright red metallic at the edges and on the sides of the instrument.

The Dragons are Bridge's 'hi-spec' custom models, equipped with Wittner Finetune geared pegs and upgraded electronics that use two coin-cell batteries. We've 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 any treble harshness.

If boring, run-of-the-mill reds and oranges just don't bring enough heat for you, this Bridge Aquila Dragon in their 'Glowing Embers' custom finish might be just the electric violin you've been looking for. Its glowing hot red to amber burst is just absolutely gorgeous, easily one of the hottest colors we've ever seen.

This "hi-spec" custom 'Glowing Embers' Aquila Dragon from Bridge Violins in the UK sports several upgrades from their 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 the Aquila Dragon sounds noticeably better than the standard Bridge 4-string. 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.

While the Dragons were initially only offered in the trademark Bridge deep purple, this instrument is finished in a beautiful 'Glowing Embers' custom color. Its swirling black patterns show its clearly relation to Bridge's other marble finishes, but in 'Glowing Embers' the color goes from a metallic golden amber to a super-saturated red metallic that is flame-like in its intensity. This finish really pops under stage lights -- it's so hot, someone in your audience might call the fire department! 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 'Glowing Embers' Aquila Dragon includes the same custom hard shell case and carbon composite bow that comes with standard Bridge models.
