Brass 
has a sweeter and mellower tone, but isn't as strong as bronze... so it
breaks 
more frequently.  Robinson sells brass.

I get my brass strings from The Instrument Workshop in Ashland, OR.  Phone
# 541-488-4671 (Jay Witcher recommended them).  Tell them you're buying it
for a harp,  so they won't send you a harpsicord sized spool.

Yeah, brass can be a pain, but I like the tone.  None of those annoying
high partials phosphor bronze has.
