Hello, I did not wish to hijack the other topic on machine heads so I started this one. I see many Esraj sold with them now. What are the pros and cons of having them versus the traditional wooden pegs?

Thank you.

I find it easier to tune machine heads than traditional wooden pegs on my dilruba which has main strings fitted with machine heads and the tarab and jawari strings with wooden pegs. If all the strings had machine heads, I would expect them to make the dilruba/esraj slightly heavier.
