Gasparo Duiffopruggar of FŁssen, Germany, violin maker, luthier. Da SalÚ exported his instruments to France and Spain. He had five apprentices: his son Francesco, an assistant named Battista, the French Alexander of Marsiglia, Giacomo Lafranchini and, last, the most important is Giovanni Paolo Maggini who inherited da SalÚ's business in Brescia upon da SalÚ's death. Valentino Siani worked with Giovanni Maggini.

Renowned luthiers from the 18th century include NicolÚ Gagliano of Naples, Italy, Carlo Ferdinando Landolfi of Milan and Giovanni Battista Guadagnini. From Austria originally, Leopold Widhalm later established himself in NŁrnberg, Germany. The early 19th century luthiers of the Mirecourt school of violin making in France were the Vuillaume family, Charles Jean Baptiste Collin-Mezin, and Collin-Mezin's son, Charles Collin-Mezin, Jr. The JťrŰme-Thibouville-Lamy firm started making wind instruments around 1730 at La Couture-Boussey, then moved to Mirecourt around 1760 and started making violins, guitars, mandolins, and musical accessories.
