Bending Brass Tube

I have a buddy that is building a bar and wants to integrate some brass into it. I've never worked with brass, so I'm not sure how well it takes to bending and such. He's wanting a wrap around foot rest as well as some corner brackets.

I did some brief searching (onlinemetals.com) and it looks like 330 brass has decent properties for form-ability. Respectable strength numbers as well.

I'd be looking to roll it in my Swag outfitted HF tube roller and possibly bend it with my Pro Tools 105 rotary draw bender.

Is it worth giving it a shot? I was hoping to hear from others who have had success before investing a bunch of money on material. This stuff isn't cheap.
