Philip Graham produces old-school microphones by hand at his Portland company. The Edwina mic ($499) has a large diaphragm set in a head basket constructed from plumbing flanges and stainless-steel bolts.

Deck wireless speaker

SOL Republic, solrepublic.com.

This Wilsonville company was founded in 2011 by Kevin Lee, Scott Hix and Seth Combs, who say they wish to "rid the world of hollow-sounding headphones." SOL Republic's deck wireless speaker ($199.99) features a 300-foot wireless range and "heist mode," a feature that allows five different mobile devices to connect to one deck, the only speaker that can do so. The wide wireless range is perfect for anyone who wants to DJ while also making it out to the dance floor.
