Anton Oms
Instrument Maker



Native of Tremp, he moved to Barcelona with his father Pere Oms and worked as a woodwind instrument maker (within the guild of lathe operators). The scarce surviving evidence suggests Oms had a shop in Plaça Nova (Barcelona) between 1780 and 1790. In addition, Anton did his master’s examination on 25th November, 1781. Twenty of his instruments have been preserved: xeremies (shawms), flutes, oboes, bassoons, a clarinet, a requinto and a serpent. His sons Anton and Pere devoted themselves to the same trade. In the personal diary of the Baron of Maldà, the Omses are described as lathe operators and not as instrument makers.
