The acquiescence and acoustic backdrop of assumption accept fabricated it the metal of best for assumption agreeable instruments such as the trombone, tuba, trumpet, cornet, euphonium, tenor horn, and French horn. Even admitting the saxophone is classified as a woodwind apparatus and the harmonica is a chargeless reed aerophone, both are additionally generally fabricated from brass. In agency pipes of the reed family, assumption strips (called tongues) are acclimated as the reeds, which exhausted adjoin the shallot (or exhausted "through" the shallot in the case of a "free" reed).

Brass has college acquiescence than brownish or zinc. The about low melting point of assumption (900 to 940 °C (1652 to 1724 ºF), depending on composition) and its breeze characteristics accomplish it a about accessible actual to cast. By capricious the accommodation of chestnut and zinc, the backdrop of the assumption can be changed, acceptance adamantine and bendable brasses. The body of assumption is about .303 lb/cubic inch, 8400 to 8730 kilograms per cubic metre5 (equivalent to 8.4 to 8.73 grams per cubic centimetre).

Today about 90% of all assumption alloys are recycled.6 Because assumption is not ferromagnetic, it can be afar from adamant atom by casual the atom abreast a able magnet. Assumption atom is calm and transported to the branch area it is broiled and adapt into billets. Billets are acrimonious and extruded into the adapted anatomy and size.

Aluminium makes assumption stronger and added bane resistant. Aluminium additionally causes a awful benign adamantine band of aluminium oxide (Al2O3) to be formed on the apparent that is thin, cellophane and self-healing. Tin has a agnate aftereffect and finds its use abnormally in sea baptize applications (naval brasses). Combinations of iron, aluminium, silicon and manganese accomplish assumption abrasion and breach resistant.
