Brass Tube Products: Preferred Materials in Making Musical Instruments


In metallurgy, brass pertains to the alloy of copper and zinc. In music, it refers to aerophones, or instruments that require the blowing of air to play. However, because many metallic musical instruments are made of the metal brass, brass instruments are often misconstrued as all being made of its namesake metal.

Brass is used in many musical instruments, even outside the brass family, due to its unique properties. Compared to other metals, brass’s malleability makes it resistant to tension; and high-quality brass tube products are tough raw materials used in many other industrial and commercial applications.
