Common questions you may have.

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

Due to COVID, shipping delays can be painfully long. Because of this, I ship via DHL Worldwide Express, or UPS Worldwide Expedited. They can be more expensive ($35 to $40US) but VERY reliable and VERY fast. And much cheaper than buying via a distributor within your own country.

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

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 is 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.

For the standard Machine, I recommend triangles up to 8". For the Grover Pro and Hybrid Machines, up to 10".

If your triangle is a bit larger than the recommendation, it still may work (and I have some tricks up my sleeve that may help eke out a bit more space).

Here is a list of finger cymbals on the Finger Cymbal Machine page that I've tried and work nicely with The Machine.

Generally speaking, 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.

October 2021 Update.

All Miller Machines now come standard with a custom designed 5/16" brass beater.

This update also makes it possible for you to use any size of your own favorite Stoessel, Grover Pro, Black Swamp, Dragonfly Percussion, Freer... or even the Shelley Tear Drop Beaters on your Machine.

A Beater Upgrade Kit is available for all previous versions of Miller Machines.

The Grover Pro Miller Machine is available in the US at Steve Weiss Music.
