Brass is an alloy of both copper and zinc. It has low friction properties and acoustic properties, which make it one of the most popular metals to use when making musical instruments. It is commonly used as a decorative metal because of its resemblance to gold. It is also germicidal which means it can kill microorganisms on contact.
Other applications include architectural uses, condenser/heat exchangers, plumbing, radiator cores, musical instruments, locks, fasteners, hinges, ammunition components, and electrical connectors.
Brass can be purchased online and at any Metal Supermarkets location. It can be cut to your exact specifications.
