Broken plugs from an RCA cable are stuck in my amp. Help?

I tripped over an RCA cable connecting my amp to my laptop...and the RCA cable broke off, leaving the actual plugs stuck inside the amp. How the heck can I get them out?

That's the whole story. I tried to sort of carefully wedge them out with a paper clip, but that was obviously completely futile and only made the situation slightly worse.
What are the actual plugs made of? Are they magnectic, as in, could I use a really powerful magnet to pull them out? Should I attempt to remove the back of the amp myself and get them out that way?
Or is this something I should just have professionally done? And if so, where? Recommendations for a place in Portland, OR who could fix it would be great.
The amp is a Roland KC 500.
