Here, I presume that "bass" is actually a spelling mistake, and that you mean "brass". "Scrap brass" would make much more sense than "bass"! The value of scrap brass per kilogram varies depending on the current economic market, the quality of the brass and so on. Also, scrap metal of any kind, including brass, is usually valued by the pound. However, it is pretty easy to convert this measurement into the price per kilogram of brass. At the time this article was written, in July 2011, scrap brass could be sold at anything between $1.45 and $1.60 per pound.  As there are 2.2 pounds in a kilogram, one kilogram of scrap brass would be worth between $3.19 and $3.52. However, expect to pay or sell your brass for less than this if it is contaminated or poor quality brass. Also, please be aware that prices for all scrap metals can change on a weekly, even a daily basis.

Brass is metallic solution which comes in a solid form. It is made up of copper and zinc - depending on the ratio of these two substances, the brass which is formed from them will have different properties. Brass appears as a yellowy-gold substance, which means it is often used for decoration due to its similarity to gold. Candlesticks, doorknobs, hinges and locks are often made out of brass because of this. Due to the high malleability of brass (malleability refers to the ability of a metallic material to change shape when stress or pressure is applied to it), its low melting point and the acoustic properties of brass, it is often used in creating instruments such as trombones, tubas and trumpets - hence the name "brass band". Brass can also be used in weaponry and ammunition. In addition, brass is commonly used in electrical and plumbing equipment.
