Is music really in the human DNA? Judging from mankind’s universal love of music, this may very well be true. Ancient history seems to confirm this hypothesis as well: In 2012, scientists found a flute-like instrument made of bird bones believed to be around 42,000 years old.

While brass is hardly the only metal used for instrument production, this alloy features distinct qualities suited for the job, according to top manufactures of brass tube products.
