Cymbals are typically made from a copper alloy as it had desireable sound properties. The cymbals in the collection are made from brass, an alloy of copper (38%) and zinc. Brass cymbals are considered 'the most basic cymbals you can hit' as it is limited in sound compared to other copper alloys as described by Paul Francis at Zildjian. The use of brass is common in beginner instruments as it is lower in cost compared to other alloys. 

The cymbals found in the collection is tarnished and has lost its lustre. Tarnish is a mild form of corrosion caused by the exposure of copper to the environment like oil and salt from your fingers or chemicals in water.
