I have a 26J with a 24 in front bell and 4 valves. The valves are arranged in an arcuate pattern to fit the hand, rather than in a straight line. Its very heavy, 34# on my bathroom scale. I have had it for several years and used it mostly for Mayfests and Oktoberfest and Wurstfests (New Braunfels, TX). There were several front bell tubas at the last Wurstfest. They work well for this setting.
I need to sell mine. Its in beautiful condition and sounds great, and has matching Conn boxes. If you are interested send e-mail to dick200(AT)juno.com.
