Space magic!

I originally ordered two machines for the Sydney season of West Side Story. The percussion section had been reduced and some parts had been added to the drum chair. To try and play the show without the Miller Machines would have been a comedic disaster! I can just see it, sticks rolling off my lap, triangle beaters flying everywhere ha ha. They saved me and now I use them in lots of non theater related projects. Can't say enough good things about Billy and his wonderful machines. 🙏🙏🙏

Wow, thank you Glenn! Billy

An essential for pit gigs!

The Miller Machine has become one of the most-used tools in my bag and removes all the stress from quick implement switches on pit gigs and more! It's low profile, easy to mount, and handles quick passages well. Every time I've had a question, Billy has been so responsive and helpful!

Andrew! Thank you! That's so nice of you. Billy

It's good!

I find myself looking for places to use it. "Oh, this gig definitely needs triangle even though it's not written.". 😁

Thank you Don!!! Billy

Such a great product!

I bought a Miller Machine a couple of years ago, when I encountered a show that seemed impossible to play without it. When I bought it, I expected it to be purely functional, but it has far exceeded my expectations. It is capable of very challenging rhythmic passages, it’s easy to mount in a variety of ways, and it sounds great. I liked it so much that I bought one as a graduation gift for a student that was going into music. It’s a great product - I’m not sure why I waited so long to get one. The website is also very helpful with mounting ideas! Thanks, Billy!

Thank you Murray! Great to chat with you.

"Just want to give a shout out to Billy Miller and The Miller Machine.

I've played a lot of Broadway shows with The Miller Machine, and a lot without, and you want The Miller Machine in your setup.

I would say it's become just part of the gear that you have when you setup for a show. It's taken an enormous amount of stress out of trying to integrate a triangle into your part."

Warren Odze Broadway Drummer
