Century Mallet

RAW VENUE #6 – Century Mallet Instrument Service was founded in 1980 by master tuner Gilberto Serna. Located in the same building that J.C. Deagan, Inc. occupied for nearly 100 years, Century has many connections to its historic predecessor. Gilberto worked for J.C. Deagan for over 15 years and was trained by its master tuners. He founded Century Mallet in the original building, with machinery, tuning instruments, and tools purchased from Deagan.
