Throughout all of the shows that Kelli Said has performed, Ryan has used approximately 72,000 inches of guitar string.  That’s about 1.14 miles of nickel plated steel, folks!!!

Ryan Rister’s Gear

Ryan Rister’s Gear


My gear is an ever-evolving circus act of tonal fun.  However, my bandmates would be surprised to know that I have actually been satisfied with my pedalboard arrangement for quite some time.  My guitars are a different story, though.  I have a passion of acquiring lower end guitars and modding them into high end boutique tone killing machines.  With proper set-up, upgrades, and customization, you can get so much more out of any instrument.


My current line up of guitars is as follows (all are heavily modded, of course):

Epiphone Limited edition 1966 Re-issue G-400

Epiphone Les Paul Standard

Agile AL-2000

Anthem PST20TR

Epiphone G-310 (yes, the 310…you should hear it now!!)

Epiphone DOT

Fender MIM Strat (gives new definition of a “super strat”)


My pedalboard is currently loaded with the following goodies (also heavily modded):

VOX 847UJ wah

Shure wireless

DOD Milkbox Compressor

MXR Envelope Filter (Thanks, Nick!!!)

Arion Tubulator

Fulltone OCD Drive pedal

Shart (a General Guitar Gadgets DIY clone of the Dan Armstrong Green Ringer…and also Keith’s absolute favorite effect – Keith says I’m wrong!)

Arion SCH-Z Chorus

MXR Phase 90

Boss DD-7 Delay

Korg Pitch Black Tuner

Biyang Tri-Reverb

Boss GE-7 EQ for boosting solo’s

Homemade Talk Box

Morley ABY switcher

Egnater Tweaker 15

Various Speaker cabs, depending on venue size
