This is the Bridge Electric Range of violins, cellos and basses.
They are purpose made, electric instruments designed for amplification. As trained luthiers we believe an acoustic instrument should remain as it was originally intended, and as a consequence designed this range of instruments.
Suitable for both amateurs and professionals, they provide the quality of sound, reliability and durability required for the exacting standards and rigours of touring.
Although visually quite far removed from their acoustic counterparts, the sound and feel is closely matched. As a result of our traditional training all reference points, measurements for construction and set up are exact to modern orchestral specifications, making all our instruments comfortable and easy to play with the benefits of low volume for practice, and high volume for performance with no feedback!

Custom Aquila

When Bridge Instruments approached me to try one of their new violins, I jumped at the chance. It was an opportunity to work with someone who understood what an electric violin could and should sound like.
Over a period of about nine months Bridge developed and I road tested a number of different pick-up and electronic systems to arrive at the one I use today. From the start I was impressed that we were working with a resonant hollowbody as opposed to the ‘planks’ that everyone else was using, this seemed to give a more responsive ‘acoustic’ sound making the instrument sound like a violin and not a synthesiser. We worked a lot on the frequency range and tone to give the ‘bite’ and ‘attack’ that I need to be heard above electric guitars and drums, yet retaining the mid-frequency power that can (with a few effects!) make one violin sound like a full string section. The end result is what I would call the first REAL electric violin on the market, professionally tested in recording and live performances.

Bridge Review:

“I have been playing a Bridge electric violin for a few years now and I must say it has a winning sound and a distinguished futuristic design.
The violin’s dynamic yet round tone, beautifully complements the energy of every live show.
I love my Bridge violin – great sound, great looks! ”
