PEN ARGYL, Pa., Nov. 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Grain Audio, maker of solid wood based headphones and speakers, has teamed up with HeadCount, a non-partisan organization that works with musicians to promote participation in democracy, to raise funds this holiday season via its "Signature Series."
The items are available via online auction at www.charitybuzz.com/HeadCountHoliday.
The "Signature Series" features 12 hand-signed versions of Grain Audio's Packable Wireless System. The artists featured in the series are:
Bob Weir (Ratdog, The Grateful Dead)
Trey Anastasio (Phish)
Gary Clark Jr.
Jeff Tweedy (Wilco)
Derek Trucks & Susan Tedeschi (Tedeschi Trucks Band)
Dave Schools & John Bell (Widespread Panic)
Warren Haynes (Gov't Mule, The Allman Brothers Band)
Grace Potter (Grace Potter & The Nocturnals)
The Disco Biscuits + Mickey Hart and Bill Kreutzmann (The Grateful Dead)
From Grace Potter writing on the PWS how much she "LOVE, LOVES THESE" to Moby drawing a picture of himself on the unit, each is a distinct and unique collectors item. Proceeds raised from this auction will go directly to benefit HeadCount's mission of leveraging the power of music to encourage active participation in the democratic process.
The PWS.01 (MSRP: $249) is a portable battery-powered speaker that connects with any Bluetooth-enabled product. The unit made Maxim's list of top five wireless speakers on the market — out of those, it's the one "that's currently presiding over our living room," while Details Magazine writes that the units "look as great as they sound."

These, one of a kind, hand-signed PWS units will exclusively be available on CharityBuzz between November 25th and December 15th.
