Abstract

The concept disclosed here is the construction of a head comprised of three gaps in alignment with one another, each smaller in width than the preceding one, in which the largest one is an erase head, the smallest is a read/write head and the center element may be utilized in one case as the read/write head for the wide track, and in the second case, as an erase head for narrower track applications.
