Hi Le Basseur,  
AFAIK Austrovox was a genuine Austrian Brand located in Vienna. The boards in the earlier amps are marked "Stuzzi" (Austrian engineer who became famous for his tape recorders in the sixties).  
The circuits are remarkably similar to some Echolettes which were copied from Marshall (except the cathodyne PI) who copied from Fender etc. But the (rather weird) tonestack appears to be genuine...  
Note to your drummer: In the meantime I have a built-in snare in my PMD-1 and the bottom of the can sounds like a cowbell 8-)
