comment How can I evaluate the quality and value of a violin?
I gave few details about what details were, and this is why I said "superficially". An experienced player understands the details, which is why the best players play fine instruments and not $100 made-in-China instruments. As a fiddle owner and guitar player, though, I bow to your greater experience.

comment Why can't we play what people speak?
One of the first things that Vai did for Zappa was to transcribe his solos from the Shut Up And Play Your Guitar, to be published. Evidently, he transcribed some of the Zappa's stage banter, too. (Can't source it atm.) So him playing what his sister said is unsurprising but incredible.

comment Playing with a pick with less pick-sound
I thought the opposite was true: that lighter picks were clickier. There's also hard/soft. I use an Ultex pick that's hard and I'm told sounds more like tortoise-shell (never played with the real myself, and don't intend to) and I'm sure that, for the same pick size, the Gator Grip would have less of the percussive attack.
