Default driver signals

ok i was wondering do traces distort signals cause i was checking some drivers on an amp that i replaced and the wave is perfect at the driver transistor but at the gate resistor it changes. or could it be my scope?

For that type of signal, there will be no visible difference if the trace is intact. There will be a difference if you're looking at the base of the driver transistor and the gate resistor or if you're looking at the signal after the gate resistor.

Are you looking at the signal on the emitter leg of the driver transistor and the end of the gate resistor that's not connected to the FET gate?

You can buy cheap scope probes on ebay. They're only about $10 each and have been reliable. Buy from a US seller to get them more quickly.

Unless you have deep pockets, you don't need an SMD rework station. What SMD component have you had trouble replacing?

OK. I can't help. I've never needed anything other than chipquik and a soldering iron.
