Would you expect that you could pick up just about any pro violin and play with the same ease as your regular violin and, if not, why not?  (Excluding differences in accessories).

I couldn't because I am not used to how they react. Some violins need more pressure than others. Some respond easily and others need to be convinced. I could play them for a while and quickly play as well as on mine provided they are good instruments. When I play on GREAT instruments that I cannot afford, I often play better than on my own.

Well, I have my private theories about things but the bottom line is my realization of how complex the details are for a really good violin performance and we, as an audience, can only hear the music without knowing what is happening beneath the surface coffee2

 

I think that's called "running in the background" amuse

This is true, however, the better your technique the less you concern yourself with the equipment. Keep going the way you are Oliver and you will be very happy with your progress, I am sure.
