An Eb alto horn is a good proposal. So would a smaller 3 valve Bb baritone be. But an easier start might be just to get the guy a mouthpiece and let him put some buzzing through that. Then the real horns can come later on.
Bach 12c or 15c would work, and if they are not getting to many dents in their stems, they could work with a baritone later on.
Best of luck with the project.
