Making the impossible possible!

I've been the Drummer/Percussionist for a regional summer musical theater organization for the last 25 years, and it's becoming increasingly rare that I don't have at least 1 Miller Machine in my set up. I now own 4 of these devices (Finger Cymbal, Block, and 2 Triangle Machines). Thank you Billy Miller for making life in the pit so much easier!

Thank you for your continued support Roger, and this wonderful review! Billy

Just buy one now!

Just happened across these guys while looking at something else, and likely one of the best finds ever!! So many times I've had to forego or miss a triangle part due to not having the time to switch beaters to sticks of vice-versa. The Miller Machine eliminates that problem, yet still leaves the triangle exposed to play a "roll' with a seperate beater if needed!! Great product, works fantastic. Like I said, just buy one for yourself!!!

This is wonderful, Thank you Rob!

5 Star Service !!

How did we manage before the “Miller Machine” came along. The products are brilliant yet simple . Well made and so easy to use. From ordering online from a very clear website to delivery to the UK everything was easy and on time to the day. As they say I never leave home without it now small but essential part of all my set ups large or small. Thanks Billy !!!!

Phil, I'm so glad you're happy with all your Miller Machines, and thank you for this wonderful review! Billy

Brass all day!

Billy’s customer service is top notch! He promptly and kindly helped me out when I wanted to upgrade to the brass beater. It’s worth every penny and I’m grateful for the install tutorial video!

Thank you Christina! And thanks for your support. I'm glad the video was helpful too! Billy

Should have bought one a long time ago!

Used my new Miller Triangle Machine Plus for two different show productions in the first few weeks of owning it, and I already count it as one of the best investments I've made in equipment. A well thought-out, well engineered, and well-made product that is now an essential part of my gear kit. Highly recommended!!!

Thank you for this wonderful review! Glad you're getting lots of good use out of it already :) Billy

The best products ever!

Tibetan Finger Cymbal

Outstanding cymbal addition. Just enough dissonance to set it apart, yet with enough laser tone to cut thru.

Thank you for the review Alan! Billy

A unique and valuable tool

The Miller Machine came to my attention when a drummer on a show came through my theatre. It solves both the problem mounting a triangle and playing it without the hassle of traditional methods. No more spring clips or hunting for the beater. The Miller Machine gives a consistency of chime with every tap of the mechanism.

Thank you Dan! Billy

A great innovation once again!

The Miller Machine and the new Block Machine are game changers for the working percussionist, and in the high school or collegiate ensemble. Thank you!

Matthew, thank you for the review, I really aprreciate it! Glad you're enjoying the new Machine. Billy

We have to give our customers at Studio Instrument Rentals (S.I.R.) what they want! The customers have been asking for the Miller Triangle Machine and they now can rent one anytime they're in NYC - thanks for the speedy shipping Billy!

Clutch!

I couldn’t be happier with this invention and my purchase. It’s so easy to mount and adjust angles as necessary for different setups. Game changer in my musical theater life! Even if I have time to pick up a beater, it’s great to have my triangle mounted in a convenient spot instead of trying to hang it off of a stand and out of reach. With the Miller Machine, it stays put, no swinging around. I ordered the basic model because I needed it in a pinch and the pro model was out of stock but after having used the pro model from a friend, I’d definitely recommend that one for the brass beater and extra angle adjustments.

Thank you for this wonderful review Christina! Sorry the Plus model was out of stock, it's back in again. Billy

Excellent Product!

This device saved my life for the most recent musical! I love it. Every percussionist should own one.

Thank you so much for your review Subha, I'm glad it's working out for you! Billy

Horizontal Mount
Jason S. (Los Angeles, CA, US)
Excellent

This Horizontal Mount worked out perfectly for me. It was the perfect size, and being able to suspend my triangle securely on a cymbal stand was far superior to hanging it from a clip on the stand. It kept the triangle from moving while playing, without dampening the sound. Highly recommended.

Thank you Jason! I'm glad the Horizontal Mount worked for you, and thanks for leaving a review :) Billy

Block Machine
Alan S. (Irondale, AL, US)
New Block Machine

Once again, Mr. Miller has created a great machine for the multi-percussionist. This simple, well made product, is extremely helpful with or bell/block passages in which stick/mallet changes are not possible. Easy to mount and very adaptable.

Alan! Thank you for this wonderful review, glad you like it! Billy

Horizontal Machine
Don L. (Oak Ridge, TN, US)
Must-have for any gigging percussionist

The various machines are essential for most modern musicals, as well as for any number of other applications - multiple percussion setups, the phone bell for “Pennsylvania 6-5000” with any big band, etc.
Not to mention, Billy is just about the nicest small business owner you’ll ever meet.
Excellent products, excellent customer service!

Thank you Don! Sorry again about the missing knob, I'm glad it's all sorted now, have fun with Addams Family! Billy

Triangle Machine
Joe L. (Linden, NJ, US)
Miller Machine works perfectly!

I recently had the opportunity to play a show that required a really fast transition from one instrument to a triangle roll. The Miller machine worked perfectly in this context. Above everything else not only does it create convenient transitions, but it is durable and establishes a really great sound on the triangle as well. I highly recommend this product!

Hi Joe, thank you for your support and your great review! Billy

Finger Cymbal Machine
David R. (Anderson, IN, US)
Miller Machines Must Have

I am a teacher and Timpanist /Percussionist in 6 regional orchestras. I ordered this because I’m starting to do Theatre Shows for the first time in many years and I find that it’s a necessity. i ordered one for Triangle, finger cymbal and Block/Cowbell and I’m glad I did because I’m using all 3 for this months show. This device just makes sense and and It’s a must have for any professional working percussionist.

Wonderful! Thank you David. All three at once, love it!!! Billy

Block Machine
Steve A. (Philadelphia, PA, US)
Love the woodblock machine

I recently purchased the woodblock machine to use in a run of My Fair Lady which has a lot of woodblock. The machine itself is great (as is with all of the Miller machines). I used it with my large black swamp woodblock which allowed me to have a much warmer woodblock tone compared to the normal plastic block I would've used just with a drum stick. I love having this because it gives me many more options of blocks that I can use in the pit.

Thank you Steve! I really enjoyed seeing the show and getting a chance to hear you play. Glad you like the new Machine. Billy

Jeff S. (Minneapolis, MN, US)
Where was this 20 years ago!!!

I am so thrilled to have purchased a Miller Machine for the show “Into the Woods”. It works perfectly when you need to quickly play the triangle and switch to another instrument. Thank you so much for inventing this! - Jeff

Jeff, thank you! Glad we got the order sorted out. Enjoy your new toys :) Billy
