Perfection

This is exactly what I needed. Amazing quality. It makes quick transitions so easy! Thank you! I highly recommend this!

Thank you for the review Randy! Billy

Giving my pa-rum-pum-pums some flair!!

I bought the triangle machine years ago and have refused to ever play the triangle normally (sans machine) again. With the holiday season in full swing, I got signed on to play a classic arrangement of “Do You Hear What I Hear?” with a Hal Blaine style finger cymbal/snare groove. I knew it was finally time to gift myself a finger cymbal machine and it did not disappoint. It took a little time to dial in the height adjustment and the feel of the beater but after that I was dinging in the holidays with style.

Thanks Gordon! Glad you were able to get it dialed in. Billy

Great Product!

I love the design and ease of use that this machine offers in the pit! Is there any kind of case or way to store/protect the device while moving or in storage? I would hate for it to break.

Thank you Jacob! I'm still trying to come up with a good solution for a storage case. If you have any ideas, please let me know. Billy

Great update to triangle arm

I really like this update. There’s a safety loop just in case you have a failure mid show and the increased stability of the hang lets your triangle stay still for manual and fast playing. Solid improvements on an already great product.

Thank you Liz! Billy

Horizontal Mount
Barbara M.

This Horizontal Mount is the perfect addition to my Merrily We Roll Along show set up. I have the original Miller Machine set up next to it. This allows me to have the variety of triangles, and methods of playing I need to play all the different ways the triangle is orchestrated into the score. Highly recommend it!

Thank you Barbara! Have fun with Merrily. Billy

Amazing.

It’s an amazing and convenient invention. I don’t know how I’ve gotten through life without this...

Thank you Carmine, I really appreciate your business and taking the time to send a review! Billy

A Must Purchase

I've got several miller machines old and new (including the triangle and finger cymbal machines). As good as the original triangle machine was, the Triangle Machine Plus is even better. Better beater from the original - but being able to angle the beater in relation to the triangle is even better. This is a "must have" not only from a musical theater perspective, but also an symphonic perspective.

Thank you Drew, I really appreciate this! Billy

Great product, well built

I really like the Miller machine it's makes playing a triangle hit doable when your hands are occupied with other percussion implements.

Thank you for the nice review Joseph! Billy

An essential piece to the ever expanding percussion arsenal

The Finger Cymbal Machine works and sounds great. I am bringing it on the West Side Story international tour along with my original triangle Miller Machine. Mr. Miller’s products are essential for any drummer or percussionist and allows us to cover multiple parts that would not otherwise be possible.

Thanks for the wonderful review Taylor! Have fun on the West Side tour! Billy

Great product that is about to make my life easier

First time application of Miller Triangle Machine

Overall, the triangle machine worked great. Used recently to play a local production of the musical Chicago. It would not have been possible to play correctly without the Miller Machine. Set up was easy and straight forward too. Well-made device, though I would have been just as happy with a lower cost less polished version if equally functional.

Thank you George! And thanks for your feedback, that's very helpful. Billy

Horizontal holder W/finger cymbal holder

Makes my life in musical pits a breeze. It frees my hands and shortens my wasted movements to reach my maximum playing potential, eliminating barriers of being able to play everything.

Thanks Logan! And thanks for taking the time to send in the review. Billy

I Dig the Ding

Billy,
Thanks very much for your fantastic Triangle and Finger Cymbal Miller Machines. I used both of these in the pit during West Side Story and they saved me during the immediate switches from drum set. Both worked smoothly with my hands or sticks, were easily positioned, and are of good quality materials. I also appreciated the ability to make adjustments on each product so I could get the best sound possible from the instruments attached to them.
Sincerely,

Thanks for this wonderful review Kent, and I'm glad the Machines worked out for you. What a fun show to use them in! Billy

Miller Machine FOR THE WIN!

The Miller Machine is ESSENTIAL! I found out I needed a second triangle arm a few days before tech rehearsal and Billy offered to ship me one super quickly in order to fill my needs. There isn’t any better customer service than Billy and The Miller Machine! I will ALWAYS have one (or 5) in my setup!

Andrew, Thank you!!! I'm glad I was able to help you get ready for the show. Billy

Finger Cymbal Machine

I love this thing! It makes life a whole lot easier when there are quick changes in the show, and I don’t have time to actually pick up two finger cymbals. Thanks, Billy!

Thanks for the wonderful review Rachel! Billy

What a great tool for any show drummer

The Miller machine is an invaluable tool to play shows! Especially with the way orchestrators are creating new orchestrations, it’s more important to have these machines than ever!! The Miller machine saved my job on many occasions!

Thanks Greg! Have fun on the Aladdin tour!!! Billy

This thing rocks!

I picked up a Triangle Machine from Billy and it hasn’t disappointed. It’s well built, discreet and works perfectly, and sits anywhere I want it in the set up.

I sell drums and percussion for a living (as well as playing) and the Miller Machine is an absolute no brainier for anyone playing in pits. It’s a ridiculously simple design that we didn’t know we needed. One of the few products in the last few years that can claim that title!

Billy’s service and comms are great and delivery overseas was quick and efficient.

Grab one for your set up. It won’t disappoint!

Thank you for this amazing review Chris! Glad you're enjoying your new Triangle Machine.

A Musical Theatre Essential

First started using it on a regional production of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, and I must say, it made everything almost too easy, to say the least. Exceptional sound, and fits perfectly in any set up

Thank you Luis! So nice of you to leave this wonderful review. Billy

Questions

Everything's in stock and I ship same day, or next day at the latest.

I ship to many countries, if yours is not included in the shipping options, send me a message.

I only use UPS Worldwide for overseas shipping. It can be a bit more expensive ($35 to $45US) but VERY reliable and VERY fast. And... much cheaper than buying via a distributor within your own country.

I've found that it's actually cheaper to order direct from me then it is for me to ship to a Distributor and have them add their markup to the price.

I know that shipping can be a bit costly but it's still cheaper for me to send it to you from the US.

There is a Lifetime Guarantee on everything I make and sell. If you don't love it (although I think you will) return it for a full refund, no questions asked :)

Click here to see more details.

Once your order ships, you'll receive an email that contains your tracking number. If you need extra help send me a message.

Happy to send you replacement parts, just send me a message.

Whatever you are comfortable with and works for you will work for The Miller Machine. The Machine is designed to be an extension of whatever's in your hand(s) at any given moment.

I have compiled a list of mounts that I know about and recommend for use with The Miller Machine.

However, this list is far from exhaustive, and as long as the mount will receive the mounting arms 3/8" rod, it will work. This applies to all Miller Machines.

I recommend triangles up to 7", or 8".

If your triangle is a bit larger than the recommendation, it still may work, and I have a few tricks that may help eke out a bit more space.

I've used these finger cymbals on the Machine. Dream, Meinl, Sabian, TreeWorks, Weiss, and Zildjian.

You can use any brand of finger cymbal as long as the mounting hole is at least 3/16th's of an inch so the finger cymbal can move freely on the mounting arm.

Yes, absolutely! The Machine is designed to allow for the full degree of musical expression achievable through traditional triangle playing techniques.

Always happy to answer any question(s) you may have. Send a message.
