    Male
    Birthday:
    May 15, 1977 (Age: 42)
    Location:
    Attleboro, MA
    Occupation:
    Luthier
    Current Setup:
    6 string Martian Mantis - 32" scale - 16" radius - Honduran Mahogany body & thru neck with mineral stained wormy Maple top - Goncalo Alves fretboard and pickup overlay - master volume/master tone knobs in Ziricote - single active EMG into a wicked rats nest of a pedalboard and out to a 36/30 compressor then into a Carvin Redline 600 head and out to a couple homemade cabinets. First cab is a 6x8 loaded with timecapsuled Altec Lanseng greenbacks unearthed from a pair of 70's vocal towers. Second cab is loaded with an 18" black widow with an ancient lo pass filter in front of it. I'm not really sure what's going on in the pedalboard but it all sounds pretty damn good to me.
    Favorite Genres:
    Bluegrass, Grunge, Island Reggae, Primus, Classic Country, Worldbeat, Instrumental Hip Hop, 90's Alternative Rock
    Gigs and Ensembles:
    Currently bassist of The Few, an Attleboro based 4 pc. nostalgic rock band.
    Previously Owned Gear:
    Nothing worth mentioning except an old banjo and a magical Electroharmonix delay pedal.
    G.A.S. List:
    I want to make myself a really sweet baritone ukulele.
    Influences and Teachers:
    My earliest influences were Les Claypool of Primus and his Carl Thompson basses. James D' Aquisto is also a huge influence of mine.
    Hobbies and Interests:
    I enjoy building and riding vintage mopeds. I collect vintage ukuleles, mandolins and banjo's. Mostly I spend my time in my shop doing what I love, building instruments.
    My name is Ryan. I was born and raised in Northern Maine. In high school I merged my music and woodworking interests by building my first instrument, a 4 string bass. Unsatisfied with the results I tried again and got hooked.

    In 2006 I moved to Attleboro to begin Becker Guitars & Martian Basses with Dan Becker.

    Today Dan & I have a small army of artists mostly in the jamband scene and build about 50 instruments per year.
