Listen to the sound of Bill Vacchiano in the New York Philharmonic and you will hear the sound of medium bore trumpets with HUGE mouthpieces. For Bill, that combination produced one of the largest trumpet sounds in history. It is really all about the combination of components - bore, leadpipe and mouthpiece." 0166167 | $3,329.00

Josh Holcomb Lucky Chops is a brass/funk band that honed their, err, chops, playing in the subway stations of NYC. Now, Raphael Buyo (Sousaphone), Josh Holcomb (Trombone), Daro Behroozi (Tenor Sax), Joshua Gawel (Trumpet) and Charles Sams (Drummer, not pictured) are feeding the demand for their high intensity shows and touring the world. Holcomb shares insight into the foundation of a good horn and private lessons.

What was your first start in music? When I was in middle school everyone wanted to play guitar or drums so I thought I’d rebel and play the trombone! I soon developed a deep love of the instrument and decided that I wanted to dedicate my life to realizing the trombone’s awesome potential.

What benefits should students look for when upgrading from a beginner to a professional instrument? It’s important to find an instrument that allows you to be yourself. I like to encourage musicians to practice exercises and technique as a means, with the end goal as having the dexterity to best express yourself. Whatever the sound is in your head that you like the most, find an instrument with features best suited to help achieve that sound.

It’s easy to get lost in the dizzying array of features in an upgraded horn. Tell students what they should avoid. All of the primary trombone manufacturers make excellent student and pro model horns. My advice to beginners, intermediates and burgeoning professionals is to save up for a high quality stock instrument and really hone your skills on that horn. After years and years on that instrument, it’s ok to experiment with different lead pipes, metal types, mouthpieces, etc., but it’s very important to first build your foundation on a tried and true quality horn.

With your band’s crazy tour schedule, especially your extensive European gigs, there is a need to travel light. What is your essential gear on the road? I’ve found that the crucial items to bring on the road are a form fitting and compact case (without compromising safety!), multiple slide creams/lubricants (I’ve lost so many on the road!), a cleaning snake/mouthpiece cleaner (build up can form in the horn and mouthpiece without you realizing it, using these regularly will keep your playing at 100%), and back up mouthpieces (I’ve been stuck in the past!)

In addition to the instrument, do you think private music lessons are critical to a student’s sound progression? I’ve been fortunate to have some truly great trombone teachers in my life. For me, the importance of good private lessons can’t be emphasized enough. Private lessons provide the foundation from which students can then personalize to make their own. I owe all my great teachers so much for the wisdom they’ve imparted to me over the years! (Shoutout to all my past private teachers: Brian Drye, Roland Barber, Dave Taylor, Luis Bonilla, Wycliffe Gordon, Jacob Garchik and the late Laurie Frink)

What social media channels can fans find you at? Yeah! You can find us @theluckychops on Facebook/Instagram/Twitter/Snapchat. We love our fans so much and we try to stay connected with them as often as we can. Thanks for the fun interview!
