This Bridge Violins Aquila (4-string) is a 'Dragon' 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.

This "hi-spec" custom Bordeaux Pearl 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 Aquila Dragon really shines. We already love the sound of the standard Bridge models, yet this instrument 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. The Aquila Dragon 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.

This Dragon Aquila is absolutely stunning, with a finish of the deepest wine red, like the skin of a perfect Red Delicious apple, sparked to light by mica and metal flakes mixed into the color. It's a rich, saturated burgundy, with even more depth to the color than is shown in the photographs.

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 Bordeaux Pearl Dragon Aquila includes the same custom hard shell case and carbon composite bow that comes with standard Bridge models.
