Bridge Draco 4 String Cello

£2,799.00

The Bridge Draco 4 string cello is a superb electric cello.

The body is hollow and moulded from Kevlar and a carbon fibre composite. The hollow body generates a sound profile within the body structure presenting an open sound without the use of reverb or delay.

The cello is very stable and not affected by temperature or humidity changes. The bridge houses the piezo pickup system. It is designed so as to pick up both the string vibration and body resonance, capturing the warmth of the sound without feedback. Complete with a bow and quality case.

Available from stock in Gloss black – other colours available.

Bridge Draco 4 String Cello:

  • Body
    • The body is hollow, moulded from a kevlar and carbon fibre composite giving a high strength to weight ratio. The hollow body generates an open sound without the use of reverb or delay. It is smooth and forgiving when played and allows low volume practise without the use of headphones or amps. Highly stable across temperature and humidity ranges.
  • Headstock
    • Inspired by a Stradivari 1701 Viola da Gamba, modified to the modern sized peg box this headstock has become the trademark of the ‘Bridge’ instruments. The distinctive shield, through peg box and neck is carved from a single maple block.
  • Pegs and Strings

  • Fingerboard and nut
    • The ebony fingerboard and nut are professionally shaped to modern standard orchestral measurements and traditionally finished.
  • Tailpiece
    • All our electric range of instruments is fitted with a Wittner lightweight alloy tailpiece fitted with integral tuners.
  • Endpin
    • Ebony plug with brass ferrula and screw in keeping with all the high quality  fittings on this instrument.
  • Bridge
    • The bridge houses the ‘Bridge’ pick up system, a piezo crystal configuration. We designed the ‘Bridge’ pick up system specifically and only for use with our instruments. It is designed to pick up both the string vibration and the body resonance generated from the hollow composite body. Utilising all the properties of a traditional acoustic bridge it captures the warmth of tone synonymous with its acoustic counterpart, with no feedback.
  • Battery Holder
    • The battery holder is located neatly on the back of the instrument and powers the Bridge Active Circuitry. It houses a 9V battery which keeps the instruments light and is readily available and easy to fit. It provides approximately 3000 hours playing time and only drains whilst the jack is connected.
  • Active Circuitry
    • Each model has its own sophisticated and bespoke active circuitry, frequency dedicated to each model’s string configuration and designed to perform in conjunction with the ‘Bridge’ pick-up system. It supplies power to drive effects and radio packs and puts the string player on equal footing with every other amplified instrument in the band.
  • Jack Socket
    • ¼ inch jack – musical instrument standard. The switch jack system automatically switches the active circuitry on and off as the jack is inserted or removed. It is carefully positioned and compatible with all common wireless solutions.
  • Controls
    • All our electric range of instruments carry a volume and tone control, easily accessible for quick adjustment during performance. The tone control is a tilt control, not a boost/cut control, changing the tonal range of the instrument.
