Call me crazy but I thought horn players were always raving about one kind of brass allow or another. I thought that rose brass had a higher copper content but I may be wrong on that one. Also, I have seen many trombones with red brass bells which I thought were a different kind of brass alloy. One of my friends has a trombone with a red brass bell and he swears that it mellows out the sound. So as you can guess, I am slightly confuzed and have little to no knowledge of alloys and metallurgy. I would be extremely grateful for any additional information you feel like telling me.
