Austrian in reference to Austria is an ambiguous and shifting term during the medieval and renaissance period. If it is taken to be the state of Austria within the wider Austro-Hungarian Empire, the instrument trade would be represented through the cities of Linz and Vienna. If, however, the Habsburg-ruled Austria-Hungary is considered, Bohemia with Prague and Hungary with Buda would be included.
