|ENGINEERED FOR SUPERIOR PERFORMANCE
has over 25 years experience in the design and production of magnetic heads for all types
of recorders. A new long life head with a tape-friendly elliptical contour has been
designed for 24 track two inch studio recording. This unique contour produces the flat
frequency response shown at the right. This contour also minimizes the drag on the magnetic
tape to promote better tracking as the head wears.
The unique elliptical contour on the face of the heads combined with the patented
material used in the face give an unparalleled combination of intimate tape to head
contact and prodigiously long life. These heads exhibit lower distortion, better high
frequency stability, essentially non-existent head bumps, less crosstalk, and have less
tape to head friction.
The photograph shows Otari and Ampex heads as well as a dummy head for use on play only
machines. Electromag heads retrofit to all 24 track recorders and provide azimuth
adjustment built into the head case for models that originally used fixed base mounting.
heads are engineered to give the mechanical support required to virtually eliminate gap
scatter and maintain track placement within 0.001 in. of the standard 24 track format. The
frequency response and distortion curves on the reverse side of this sheet exhibit the
electrical excellence that EMC heads are known for.
