As always, "it depends." I don't do the same thing all the time.

If I'm writing on piano, or just using a simple piano sound on a synth/sampler, for example, then that won't dictate anything about instrumentation (aside from the fact that it would have to be arranged for instruments that can cover all of the pitches and the range that needs to be covered).

But I might write something by goofing around with synth patches, or with particular guitar effects, etc.--in that case, aspects of a specific sound might be very important for what I wrote. So that will dictate some of the instrumental choices re the arrangement.
