Before the early 1950s the 33 1/3 RPM LP was most commonly found in a 10" format. The 10" format disappeared from United States stores around 1950, but remained common in some markets until the mid-1960s. The 10" vinyl format was resurrected in the 1970s for marketing some popular recordings as collectible.

The recording time available on 10" records depends very much on the frequency spectrum, the dynamic range, the width of the stereophonic signal and other characteristics of the recording. While we recommend keeping 10" records playing times to 9.5 – 10.5 minutes at 45 RPM and 13.0 – 14.0 minutes at 33 1/3 RPM, Pirates Press can often accommodate records with playing times of 10.5 – 11.5 minutes at 45 RPM and 14.0 – 15.5 minutes at 33 1/3 RPM.

Pirates Press offers the 10" in Standard weight (110 ± 10 g) only. The 10" Center Hole is available as "Small Hole" only.
