Contacting Sankyo Shoji Co.
By Matthew Caulfield

Sankyo Shoji does sell larger musical cylinder movements as well as
the small 18-note novelty movements.  What sets them apart from Reuge,
Ste.-Croix, Switzerland, which also sells small and large movements,
is that Sankyo stocks a much larger number of tunes for their movements.
Reuge's movements are also more pricey.

Sankyo used to have a very nice English web site which showed the
movements they stocked.  The web site also had extensive tune lists for
each size movement.  But the company ran into copyright or royalty or
other legal problems involving the web site, so now they apparently
show only a Japanese version online.

Anyone interested in Sanko products can contact Shuichi Tezuka, Overseas
Sales Mgr., Sankyo Shoji Co., Ltd., 2-3-2 Bakurocho, Nihonbashi, Chuo-Ku
Tokyo 103-0002 Japan.  Mr. Tezuka's phone number is 03-3667-5256, and
his email address is (delete
