Thanks for the details. My 26J is a 4-valve front action with offset keys. My only complaint about the horn is that I cannot reach around to get to the water keys while playing and may have to come up with some sort of remote attachment to compensate. I'm still curious about the configurations of the 20j and 24j as well.
Incidently, a 4-valve Conn Jumbo sousaphone was auctioned off at Ebay a couple of months ago -- I didn't get the model number however.
