The Helix rim is just like a shower curtain hung from a curtain rod, Amber Waves of Grain, an 8 panel curtain cut at a 45.  

My rim is called a 'build up'.  It's like a barber pole, a wagon wheel, a stained glass window arc,  thus Helix,  an ancient Roman Arch.  The music goes down away from the tone ring at a 45 degree angle.  The Helix rim is a true 75% solid hardwood rim, the neck mounts through solid wood, we alone do that, and the virtual depth is 4.25".   It's an 8-block octagon rim, and has a characteristic and unique optical illusion, an octagonal cylinder 3" high.  Like a lighthouse.

Helix rims are 8 solid blocks from top to bottom with only 8 joints reinforced by 8 glueblocks cut from the ends of each block.  Simple, strong,  gorgeous rims that 'luminesce.'  There is Chatoyance  "Like a Cat's Eye" the light shows where the music will go  .They vibrate cleanly, the rim now sings.

I love the traditions, I Iove to innovate
