Floppy drives for the Tarbell floppy controller

I used Shugart 8" drives wired as address 0 thru 3 w/o problems for single
density and double density.

the cable is pretty much just a 50 pin idc on the tarbell controller end,
and whatever fits your floppy drive on the other.

I never had 5 1/4" drives wired up, though you supposedly could
do so.

Beware the Tarbell densities over the regular 8" single sided 256k
format was not readable by much else.
