Yes, it is a 190, the vertical MTS is a giveaway.

The 190 BBb always looks a little smaller in pictures like this, out of context. It's a very large tuba, but is more tall and skinny than big and fat.

One of the reasons the 190 “looks” skinny is because it is 5-6 inches taller than a typical American BAT. Were the tuba rewrapped into a shorter configuration, the bows would be correspondingly fatter.
