In british brass bands the standard Eb mouthpiece is a Denis Wick 2 or 3 (with the 3 being all but identical to a bach 24AW). I wouldn't use anything too large to start with as big mouthpieces make life a lot harder until your chops are strong enough to cope with them, and even then they do not necessarily sound better, although they do sould different, and a lot of players have this macho thing about playing on the biggest kit they can 'handle'. Kids with toys eh.
