I find the side action recording bell horn much easier to hold than the top action. I had a Conn 20J that I just couldn't hold comfortably without a stand. I have no problem finding a comfortable playing position with the 22J. I use(d) a bit with both of them and it does make a big difference in the ability to find a comforatble playing angle.
Do you have one of those Martins with the 30" recording bell? I would think that those would have been tough to hold no matter what.
