I started to reply sooner but had customers... Schimmel made 2 different model 213's in rapid succession. The first CC213 replaced the CC208. Both were excellent, but the K213 was much wider and heavier, and became the basis for the 3 smaller Konz

Provided they use a TP40H, and not a TP100! If you can live with a TP100, buy an Electro 73 HP, it's already there. Or a NP2 HP, if you can still get one.

Insist on using 1-2-3-4-5 for five-finger patterns. Maybe you can spend some time with them writing out all the finger numbers in their pieces. Also, make sure they are reading intervallically. If they are really reading the intervals, then they sho

I am more than happy to play that 1315 or even 1215, because the etude is not played at a speed where that particular efficiency is important. If you do the fingering 1325 then you will develop better technique, and more fluidity in your fingers.
