The Olds Ambassador is an EXCELLENT choice. Your daughter is wise. That was my first horn and launched me on the career I have today. In fact, I will be sending that mid-60's vintage Ambassador for rehab with Tom Green in anohter week. This is my thank you to that FABULOUS horn it for the years of band camp and marching on many football fields that my brother and I put it through. I am going to have a beading technique done, add a third valve and play it like never before. By the way, the rule is, once you make a committment to Olds, it's Olds all the way. When she is ready for an upgrade there is ONLY the Olds Recording or Super Recording. Anything else for your daughter after experiencing an Olds will be a let down! No bias from me (don't read my signature line).
