1250 grams for a 1970's 17" A Zildjian seems about right. I it was newer I'd say it was on the high side of " THIN" weight range. However, I read somewhere that in the mid to late seventies the weights went up purposefully as drummers fought to cut through highly amplified music of the time. They broke alot of older cymbals and the author referred to that time as " The Great Cymbal Holocaust"
