The 7-inch vinyl was first introduced in the late 1940s with the aim of it becoming the main alternative to the then-popular 78 RPM shellac discs. It became trendy in the 1950s and 1960s so much so that it was a significant contributor to the music industry of rock and roll during that time.
Now in the present time, 7-inch records have the capacity of offering you special editions of songs in cuts that have been extended to about 5 minutes of playing time. These songs are primarily from singles that are meant to be for compact discs (or CDs). The disadvantage of this vinyl type is its small size which means it has a small storage capacity. The best it can hold is three to five songs, but it is majorly used for single releases and “extended plays” commonly known as EPs.
Unlike the 7- and 12-inch vinyl disks, the 10-inch variant is far less common these days. Most often, you only find this size record among serious vinyl collectors, older listeners, or fans of old classical music.
Just like its size, the 10-inch records can hold a more extended record capacity than the 7-inch variant. With a longer record capacity rate (or long play), you can quickly get around 8 minutes on each side at 45RPM and also get a much longer 13 minutes playing at 33 RPM. If you are a collector, then the 10- vinyl record might be an excellent piece to seek and include in your collection if you can find them, especially 78 RPM records (although acquiring it can be quite difficult these days).
This vinyl record size peaked in the music industry during the 1970s disco era but is still widely used today. This is known to be the largest size of all three vinyl records types, which simply means, as you might’ve guessed, it has a lot more storage. Due to its size, it is known to have the largest storage capacity of all three variants in this list.
Its storage capacity is so large that it can store about 45 minutes per side of playtime for 33 RPM records and about 22 to 30 minutes for 45 RPM records. With a larger, more extended storage capacity, this variant is said to have the closest storage rate to modern, full length CDs among all three (although CDs and other new storage mediums are smaller in both size and weight).
