Help me Identify this tube amp

I bought this little tube amp off eBay. I had one like this when I was a kid. I do not know the brand. The output transformer has clearly been changed so that is not original. It is very similar to a magnavox and it may actually be a magnavox but I am not sure.

It came with a 6J5 and a 6F6 tube and it appears i would have had a tube rectifier of some type 5y3/5u4 etc and 2 6F6/6V6/6L6 type output tubes in push-pull and then the 6J5 as the input/phase splitter. there is 5th socket, Octal 9-pin that much have connected to a pre-amp. it appears to have been wired for a field coil speaker which may or may not be original? there have been some changes made internally in the past as evidence by the bad soldering, melted wires and newer film type capacitors that have been added.

The power transformer is marked 94161-501 but there are no other markings on the amp anywhere.

Would like to figure out what this lil guy is. find a proper schematic.

I found some pictures on the web that show a 5U4 and the 6F6 tubes. and that the output transformer used to be a black can type/ the photos are too small to see anything real clear however.
