Shinwa Seikou, SSP’s parent company, dates back to Arai Seisakusho, founded in Kyoto in 1940.
For eighty years since that time, the company has specialized in precision metal machining, adapting to an ever-changing market and meetings the needs of diverse customers.
Today, the company is based in Koka, Shiga Prefecture, where it inherits that enthusiasm for craftsmanship.

In 2018, our firm launched a new global venture, drawing on our long years of technical expertise and creative thinking.
The result of that venture is SSP (Sinwa Sound Product).
SSP specializes in developing, manufacturing, and selling classical instrument components.
We rapidly brought the SSP Socket and SSP Endpin to market and garnered acclaim from professional musicians and instrument manufacturers, who heralded our products as the finest.
We continue to actively incorporate feedback from double bass specialty shops and professional musicians in order to refine these products.
In order to protect our products and ensure that customers do not get tricked into purchasing lesser imitations, the Click-System and Slip-On System are patent pending in Japan and overseas.
