Default What amp is this?

Folks, I came across this amp - labled Tonemaster with no manufacturer identification on it. It has a blown speaker and OT. Can anyone help Identify it? I suspect that a Fender Champstyle OT would suffice given the 6v6 output tube. I would then replace the spraker with an 8" 4 ohm Jensen. Please note that the pictures are as I received the amp. Thanks for your help. Al

Let's assume you have a live power trafo and a chassis with sockets for a 12AX7, a 6V6, and a 5Y3. EVERYTHING else that's not hardware gets tossed. The Fender Champ 5F1 seems like a good choice, provided you eliminate the 0.05 μF. "death cap." and install a safety grounded 3 wire power cord.

Edcor's $26.10 model GXSE10-4-5K should do quite nicely.
