The New Bridge Dragons have risen from the luthiers' benches in our UK workshops.Tuned to CGDAE an octave below the Lyra Dragon register this Lyra Dragon Octave allows the violinist to cover the cello register making it useful for building string sections and accompanying treble parts. It offers the benefits of low volume for practise and high volume for performance with no feedback. Developed from the iconic outlines of the Bridge Aquila and Lyra violins this new Dragon Octave retains the integrity of its predecessors but with so much more...


o        a new slimline neck hand finished with our own recipe of oils and shellac

o        a newly developed set of electronics that deliver greater clarity of tone

o        a higher output generation utilising a 6 volt coin cell battery configuration

o        the pickup system also upgraded to match the new electronics

o        Headphone output

o        Line 6 compatibility

Add to this the smooth Wittner finetune pegs and your own choice of custom colour and the day of the Dragon has well and truly arrived!
