Is Brass rod electromagnetic ?

No. Brass is an alloy of copper and zinc, neither of which is ferromagnetic.

A brass rod IS a conductor of electricity and as such is capable of generating an electric current when used in a generating capacity. Here are a couple of links to let you read more about it.
