German silver is a copper alloy with nickel and often zinc. The usual formulation is 60% copper, 20% nickel and 20% zinc. German silver is named for its silvery appearance. German silver is said to produce a bright and powerful sound quality; an additional benefit is that it is harder and has more corrosion resistance than brass.
