Another useful piece of your turntable is
the 7 inch adapter. Now a 7 inch record is literally just a record that’s only 7 inches.
Usually you spin a 12 inch record. This is a 12 inch single and albums generally are
12 inches as well. But they do make singles on a 7 inch. So you put this on, I mean, how
can you play this? It’s not going to work out. It could be anywhere, you don’t want
to put your needle on that, your needle might fall off, it’s not going to play the record
correctly, bad idea. So you take your 7 inch adapter, put it right in the middle, you throw
your record on. This particular record’s at 45, I make sure it’s at 45, you got azimuth.
Generally they keep a spot for your 7 inch adapter right up here. Not all 7 inch records
needs 7 inch adapters, this one in particular doesn’t, but most do. So that’s how you play
a 7 inch.
