A head for a tape drive system has a plurality of transducers formed on a substrate and protected by a cover bar, with a tie bar bonded to the cover bar. The tie bar extends along a tape-facing surface beyond the cover bar, enhancing the structural integrity of the head. Wear bars may be bonded to t ...
