A good question to ask would be: what was she playing on before? If you go drastically different, things might be more difficult for her. Investment level is important too. Ideally you'd want something for her right now that will move up with her into HS easily, and not need to upgrade in HS. |
Scientifically, the Fobes has a 1.00 tip opening, and the 5RV Lyre has a tip opening of 1.09. This difference is big enough for her to feel as soon as she tries it---it's about the same as going from the 5RV Lyre to the M13 Lyre.
I personally like playing a more closed mouthpiece, but that's my preference. She might enjoy the Fobes (and the 4C has a tip opening of 1.05, btw, so it splits the difference,) but if she's used to playing on a more open mouthpiece....perhaps not.
