Just curious; how do factories price/market their bows? Outside of the obvious I mean. For example, I have one each of two different brands of "good" factory bows. I can find the occasional example of them on-line - but only ever of inexpensive student bows sold either individually or included in a package. I have not been able to find any examples of the high quality ones. However - obviously, they are available. So why can't I find examples of them on-line? I am not planning on selling mine - but if I did, it would be hard to convince a buyer that they are worth considerably more than $69.99 - if that's the only reference available.
Does someone know, or would someone point me in the right direction: How many violins have been constructed? How many are extant? Do we have any numbers from the biggest violin factories (historical and modern)? How long do violins last? How many instruments can a 3 person workshop produce in a year? 7 person workshop? 20 person workshop? How many people have been employed in the largest operations? What is the history of mechanization in the industry? What are the different ways that quality and quantity interact? Or anything along any of those lines.
