ed devane instruments

Welcome to Ed Devane Instruments. Ed started modifying electric guitars in his late teens before eventually taking steps to create his own custom zither instrument in 2007. The images below are a selection of commissioned instruments, prototypes and installations. Get in touch if you're looking for a unique instrument.

Ed devane music

Devane began music production and sound experiments as a teenager. Releasing music since 2005, Ed's sonic output takes two main paths: heavy, beat driven electronic music, released as Ed Devane on labels such as Touchin' Bass, Mantrap Recordings and Takeover Recordings, and abstract soundscape / ambient music as Withering Zithering, released on Acre Recordings and Farpoint Recordings.

Withering zithering

Withering Zithering is Ed Devane's low-light music project, centered around stringed instruments he has designed and built since 2007. The music below is a selection of work from the past year. Withering Zithering is primarily a live project - get in touch for booking information.


Ed Devane offers instrument building and music production workshops to children, young people and adults. Below are a selection of images of workshop instruments. By building these kits, workshop participants learn about music, materials, craft, technology and the physics of sound, in keeping with STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Maths) learning.
