The process starts with a sheet of brass in the shape of a disc. It is then transferred to a lathe and pressed while turning against the pre-determined form. The result is a bell flare with slightly thinner material nearest the throat or bell ring area, and slightly thicker material near the rim or bell wire. A majority of manufacturers around the world incorporate this manufacturing technique and it is considered a modern method. 

The same bell flare as the #3 spun, only hammered from sheet brass.

Yellow Brass
dark rich core with light overtones.. even diphthong throughout register changes and volumes... great projection
Gold Brass
mid level dynamics are incredibly interesting, as dynamics become louder, the core decreases and the higher overtones have a tendency to be highly excited and take over. I have been saying for years that gold brass is "an untamed beast"
Nickel Silver
typically chosen with larger bell flares, it creates a width of sound, warm and rich, yet adds great sizzle in the louder dynamics. Most, with this size bell taper, would consider the sound to be bright.
