I vaguely remember a US plant offering custom 13" records a while back. Since then I've seen sizes ranging from 4" all the way up to the stated 13" though I'm not aware of any bands/labels who've actually invested in these oddball sizes.

Discuss, post pics of weird sized records, etc..

How do the Barbatos / Incriminated discs sound in comparison to ordinary lathe cuts?

Are players usually big enough for 13 inches? I know mine certainly wouldn't be.

Depends on the player. I have an old Magnavox cabinet that can handle something larger than an ordinary LP.

Quote:
16 and 20" discs — Although 12" was the largest disc diameter used in consumer products, broadcasting studios made use of 16" and 20"-diameter 78 rpm acetate "transcriptions," used for time-delaying programs and for prerecording broadcasts. These could provide up to 20 minutes of unbroken program material with very good fidelity (indistinguishable from live to casual, but not to critical listeners). Early classical LP recordings were in fact initially recorded on 20" 78-rpm acetates for later transfer to LP. 16" turntables are still seen in professional broadcast equipment, although it is probably very rare that any disk larger than 12" is ever played on them.

I remember my buddy buying a 5" from Coffins at a show in Waseda, Tokyo. Came in a CD case and only had one song per side.

I have this one:

http://www.musik-sammler.de/media/663334

It is supposed to be the world's smallest record. It's only 2" big. But there is a 1" release as well, so forget about that.

I have a copy of the test press, which is on an actual vinyl 5", & it sounds a LOT better.
