Where are you looking, antique stores? 8^D

Well the really old records are 78 RPM. They were 10 and 12" and played for about 3-5 min. per side.

After WWII, 'microgroove' records came out. Two different companies developed them. Columbia made 'LP' (Long Playing) records, 12" records that played for 20-30 minutes per side at 33 RPM. RCA made 45s, 7" records with a large hole in the middle that had one song on each side and played at 45 RPM.

Luckily (somehow) both these modern formats required the same diameter stylus, so record players usually had two speeds, 33 and 45 rpm. There was often also an adapter that slid over the spindle to accommodate the big hole in 45s, but you could also buy little disks that snapped into this hole to fit a regular spindle.

So most record players made after, say, 1950, either have two or three speeds. They're either 33 and 45, or 33, 45 and 78. If they play 78s also, they have an alternative stylus, a bigger needle, usually a gizmo that turns over in the tonearm to put a different needle on the record.

There was also a 16 RPM speed used for audiobooks and other 'spoken voice' materials. So some record players had -four- speeds. Some of these 16 RPM records were 16" so some of these record players are much bigger. But they were rare and you probably wouldn't see one today.
