Bandmaster radios were made by Australian General Electric Pty, Ltd

Since their introduction in 1931, Australian General Electric receivers were marketed under the names, "General Electric", "Bandmaster" and "Hotpoint-Bandmaster".  The last name was in use consistently from the late thirties onwards.
