Millers are well made, if you dont mind their Australian heritage.


Why would anyone mind?

I have a friend from Germany who has very firm views of the pre-eminence of German design and manufacture. I find it quite an endearing quality, also a bit amusing. The Germans and the Swiss are without doubt very clever people. So are Australians - we tend to be great innovators I think. Though I speak broadly and generally of course and am not being in any way nationalistic, not that there's anything wrong with promoting the qualities and endearments of one's country. But a Miller ... always wanted one. Miller and Arri .....

That's a good idea Gregg about the C section aluminium. I was never very big on the engineering side of things, especially involving metal work, but sounds like a simple project. I'm more of a woodworker. Maybe I could ask someone like Bruce McNaughton if they might be interested in making a rod system that would work with it, on this aluminium hi-hat. Just all in the planning stage at the moment as my attention is mostly on 16mm at the moment but I'm thinking it through.
