Common questions you may have.

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

Because of COVID and the large quantity of packages being shipped overseas, shipping delays can be painfully long. Because of this, I am currently only shipping via DHL Worldwide Express. It is more expensive ($35 to $38US) but VERY reliable and VERY fast.

I'm confident you will love it! If not return, your Machine for a full refund. 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 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.

Currently, no. The standard Machine includes a custom made 3/16" diameter, stainless steel beater, that is 7 3/4" long.

If you'd like the option to use your own beater, take a look at the Grover Pro Miller Machine that is available at Steve Weiss Music.

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

"When I was preparing to conductNice Work if You Can Get It, I began by watching a video of the conductor and marking my score with any cues or beat patterns that were not obvious to me. I wanted to be completely comfortable with the Musical Directors choreography before watching the video of the stage and trying to put the music to the action of the actors and dancers."

"Once you get 'that call' to do a show, the first objective for every percussionist is to find out what instruments will be required. There are a number of different sources that might provide this."

"It hasn’t always been easy (and it’s certainly very odd right now!) but personally I’ve always enjoyed the challenge. I’ve heard a few things along the way that have informed how I’ve thought about New York City and the idea of 'making it'”.
