    A grand piano can weigh anywhere from 500 pounds for an apartment-size piano to 1,300 pounds for a full-sized piano used in concert halls. Most of the weight is from a large cast-iron frame, or "harp", that keeps the strings under tension.

    What materials are used to make a trombone?

    A:

    Though the trombone is known as a brass instrument, brass is not always used in its manufacture; in fact, different models of trombones use different materials in the manufacturing process, including plastic and metals, such as brass, silver and nickel. Brass itself is a metal alloy combination of copper and zinc. Yellow brass, which is 70 percent copper and 30 percent zinc, is the most common metal used to manufacture trombones and gives the instrument its characteristic warm metallic color, but other types of brass such as rose brass and red brass, which each use higher levels of copper than zinc, can also be used.
