In 2014, Ryan founded Pereira 3D Clarinet Services, a Philadelphia-based shop that produces custom clarinets, barrels, bells, mouthpieces, and ligatures from 3D printing technology. These products maximize the potential of this technology and optimize the player's sound concept with innovative designs and high-quality materials such as 3D printed wood (which will never crack, warp, or change in dimensions over time). As of 2019, Pereira 3D offers hand-selected Buffet Crampon Clarinets and artisan-level repairs, overhauls, and restorations. In 2022, Pereira 3D introduced the world's first production 3D printed clarinet. Each instrument is completely hand-finished and it remains the most affordable wood clarinet on the market.
