That's great.
Thank you so much.
Thank you both for taking the time to help; it's really appreciated.
I've attached a few photos; the final one shows the tabs lifted by the inserted jack, thus muting the internal speaker.
Am I right in thinking that, in order to bypass this mute, I need to solder two wires that bridge the pins: using the second photo, one wire bridging the tabs with the green and yellow wires, and one bridging the tab with the blue wires to the tab without a wire?
If you need more or better photos, please let me know.
Thanks again for your wise words; you're amazing.   
I've just bought a nice little Vox Escort BM1 'Busker's Amp'; it sounds great with guitar and harmonica. I'd like to be able to send a signal to my PA, via the line out, while continuing to monitor my sound via the internal speaker; at the moment, the speaker is muted when the line out is in use.
I've asked around and it seems that, due to the resistors on the line out circuit, this would be fine on this amp; apparently, all I need to do is make the contact, that disengages when a jack is inserted into the line out socket, permanent.
How would I make the contact permanent? Could I just bend/push the copper pins, so that they remain under the inserted jack plug, or should I try soldering the connections with some wire? Any help would be much appreciated.
