Sensitive and Sturdy!

Plays great at a variety of dynamics, easy to use and very well made.

Thank you James! I appreciate you taking the time to send a review. 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

Horizontal Mount

The Miller Machine’s horizontal mount works amazingly well. Not limited to just a triangle holder. The finger cymbal attachment was well thought out, as we use these two instruments in tandem quite often. Another great product from Billy!

Thank you Dan! I really appreciate your comments!!! Billy

Miller Magic

Only recently acquired a Miller triangle machine, I’ve used it for 14 shows at Edinburgh Fringe and what a lightbulb moment for kit /perc players. It’s a genius, easy to use design.
I love it !

Thank you Keith. I appreciate your business and thanks for the review! Billy

Discover the true potential of your triangle's overtones

Yes, that is a hokey review title but that is exactly what this adjustable Miller Machine does. Well worth it and highly recommended. I did mess up and not get the flames option on this one...

So awesome! Thanks for this wonderful review Linda! Billy ps: currently no flame version for this Machine but planning to add one. I'll send you updated stickers when I do ;)

Game changer!

I've been hearing about the Miller Machine for years and also struggling to juggle stick changes. I recently got a Miller Machine for a production of Cabaret and it made everything about my experience playing the show so much smoother and less stressful. I highly recommend adding this to anyone's setup who regularly plays drum set and/or percussion in musical theater contexts. The Miller Machine is now an 'essential' for me and not something I will go with out for any future shows!

Thank you so much for this wonderful review Ian! Billy

Upgrade from the previous version

Even though this was "refurbished" it's basically brand new. I've got the old version which this is such an upgrade - which includes a Stoessel-Style beater and adjustable/floating mount for the finger cymbal. Highly recommended.

Thanks Drew! I'm glad you're enjoying the new upgrades :) Billy

Miller Machine saving Pit Orchestras one triangle at a time.

So glad I found the Miller Machine. Without the Miller Machine the transitions to triangle during our run of Something Rotten! would have been missed a majority of the time, but the Miller Machine took all those tricky transitions and stick changes out of the picture. Just give the red rubber ended beater a tap with whatever is in your hand, or even just your hand, and voila, a perfect triangle strike every time! I'm sure the cool flame decals also ensure laying perfection. It's a great addition to my equipment arsenal, and will get use well beyond pit orchestra applications.

Thanks Andrew! I really appreciate your business! Billy

Must-have item, and great customer service.

You need one of these. Don't even think about it. Just do it!

Refurbished? It looks and works like new!

I’ve been using another maker’s finger cymbal trigger for years. That one isn’t as sensitive as my Miller Machine Triangle Trigger. It also has fewer parts to worry about. Can’t wait to use this Finger Cymbal Trigger in a gig. Considering it was “refurbished” from being displayed at a show, it works (and looks) just like new! Thank you for the deal, Billy!

Carl! Thank you, I appreciate your feedback. If there's anything else I can help you with, let me know. Billy

Great stuff as always, Billy!

Thanks Will! :)

Trying our Triangle machine

I showed my new triangle machine to our leader of the Mitch Mitchell fan club and fellow member of the Grater miami symphonic band and he was already impressed and he asked me to recommend the miller machine to our band and different orchestra's.

Thank you Jorge! Was great meeting you and hanging out at the Music City Drum Show. See you next year :) Billy

Suits its purpose.

Thanks Ira! I'm glad it's working out for you. Billy

Excellent product and service

Ordered the triangle machine from Billy and all I can say is that is an absolute game changer for set ups. It’s a must have piece of equipment. Also, the shipping to the UK was very efficient and surprisingly not as expensive as I was expecting. Great customer service and communication throughout the transaction

Thanks Billy!

Thanks Max! So nice of you, glad I could help you out with your Miller Machine purchase. Billy

Triangle Machine

Billy-Your Triangle Machine is truly a great product. I used it this past weekend with The Free State Brass Band and the Kansas City Horn Club. A percussionist friend of mine was surprised at the volume that was attainable from the machine. Thanks for your support and fast customer service.

Thanks Mark! Love this, thank you! Billy.

Love it!!!

This is the greatest tool a percussionist could have. It frees up a hand and allows you to play the triangle and another instrument simultaneously without compromising the sound. I highly recommend it!!!

Lisette! Thank you so much for this, I really appreciate it. Billy

Glad I finally picked one up!

Excellent functionality. Very dynamic and controlable. Immediately became part of my performance.

Thanks Russ! I appreciate your review. Billy

Thanks Mike, enjoy your new Machine! Billy

Miller Machine is a must have

It is simply impossible to play modern commercial projects without a Miller Machine. Arrangers know it is available and write accordingly. Great product and great customer service. Thanks Billy Miller!

Ken, thanks for being a great customer, I appreciate your support! Billy

I love my Miller Machine!

I needed a way to manage a triangle with other handheld drums for a concert tour. The Miller Machine is great: it ensures perfect and repeatable striking of the triangle and is small and light to pack easily in a backpack. I made a mount to hold it to the music stand.

Jonathan! Thank you for this awesome feedback. Love your custom built mount :) Billy

Greatest Gadget To Date!!!!!

This thing is amazing! I had high expectations, based on the reviews I saw, and man they absolutely deliver!!

Love this! Thanks for the review Alyx. Billy

Beautifully-designed, very functional!

The Miller Machine solved so many problems in a recent large set-up. I needed consistent access to my triangle, often when playing other instruments with hands or mallets. I appreciated the dynamic range and flexibility, and it was so nice to not have to default to a "compromise mallet" sound. Thank you! (Here's a pic from the Time of Music Festival in Viitasaari, FInland with Talea Ensemble.)

Thanks for the wonderful review Bonnie! 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 8", or 9".

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.

Here is a list of finger cymbals (from 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.

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