The new Bauhaus-WALSTEIN Deluxe Model Saxophones (A.I. - Action Improved) have the same specifications and sound as the "Original" models, the body shape and materials are largely the same, the difference is in the keywork.
Action Improved - The New Saxophones from BAUHAUS
Bauhaus have rebuilt the action in the A.I. (action improved) series using a shoulderless point screw and redesigned pillar-rod mechanism. The screws are manufactured from hardened steel, and the housing mechanism is carefully engineered around them creating greater ergonomics, making for a smoother, more responsive action.

Bauhaus' claim that the keywork is "robust" is not idle. It is much like the rest of the saxophone - made skillfully, of quality materials, and built to last.
