Why buy a hand-crafted violin?

When I first started playing violin, I wondered why everyone wanted a 'hand-crafted' violin.  Whewwww-who, hand-crafted violin, aren't you superior ... I thought.  To me it seemed to make sense to pump them out by machine because it would be cheaper.  The problem is that the quality of the sound coming from a violin (maybe more than any other instrument) is dependent on the quality of the instrument.  That is to say, if the violin sucks, the sound will suck too!  It is easy to make a terribly irritating sound with a violin.  That screeching, scraping noise is right up there with out of tune bagpipes; it is torture.  

So, why a hand-crafted violin?  Each piece of wood has a different quality, density and tone.  Even within the same tree, these characteristics vary considerably.  A violin maker, technically called a luthier, tests the wood by striking it and assessing the sound.  This is why certain brands of violins will brag about the types of wood they use.  For example, Silver Creek violins use wood from the Carpathian forests in Europe.  Moreover, many people believe the wood should come from trees that grow at a high altitude, especially trees that are forced to endure tough conditions.  The theory is that these trees will yield wood that is superior with regard to enduring the stress of string tension, etc.  Remember, the idea is to create an instrument that lasts many, many years.
