-ABOUT Johann Christian Hoffmann-

baptised in Leipzig in 1683 , son of Martin Hoffmann, who was already a well-known violmaker, he stepped into his fathers footsteps as an instrumentmaker. In 1712 he was appointed "Königlich Polnischen und Kurfürstlich Sächsischen Hofinstrumentenmacher" (Royal Polish and Kurfürstlich Saxon Court Instrumentmaker). In 1734 Johann Sebastian Bach, who was a very good friend of his, transferred to him the maintenance of the instruments of both the Thomas, as well as the Nicolai churches in Leipzig. He remained childless. Johann Christian Hoffmann died in 1750.
