Brass properties and uses. Brass is easily identified by its bright gold-like appearance, has excellent corrosion resistance and good low friction properties that make it ideal for the manufacture of locks, gears, bearings and valves. Musical instruments are also made from it due to its pleasing acoustic properties. Brass is easily machined and both hard and soft soldered with good results and it casts well.
