I have Gasflux from Henry James and the LFB from Cycle Design. I think most people use those. I suspect that anything Harris sells is pretty good, but there is a big difference in usability between the different bronzes. Then again, brass is cheap, you could tell us how it works. I have some no-name brass from the welding shop, it works ok, but it's not as nice as the first two I listed.

Bronze brazing is commonly called welding in the trade.
Silver is not the only thing you can braze with. The vast majority of lugged bikes made throughout history had almost exactly zero silver content.
