Upgrade your existing Miller Machine to hold the new custom designed 5/16" Solid-Body Brass, or Steel Beater.

You get all the pieces, and parts, you need to convert any Miller Machine to hold this new beater.

I recommend brass for your Triangle Machine, and steel for your Finger Cymbal Machine.

If you're looking for a brass option for your finger cymbal (or crotale note) try the new Brass Ball Beater.

Installation videos available here, or down below.

[finger cymbal, Finger Cymbal Arm, Miller Machine Body, mount, triangle, Triangle Arm, not included]

"Thankfully, the new beater upgrades arrived just in time to use them on this run!

I knew the upgraded beaters would be better, but I was really surprised with how good they sound! I still play the triangle by hand when I can for more control, but the sound between my Stoessel beaters and the brass beaters with the upgrade is nearly indistinguishable."
