Curious thing on the ma string. Is that a fixed post? Some kind of screw-action fine tuner, as on some violins? Chess-piece-as-a-tuning-bead?

Pic gives a nice idea of string spacing which is helpful for me, who has always gone gandhar pancham from existing kharaj pancham sitars.

There's an old post somewhere that explains how this works. Might take some finding, but I seem to remember it is a fine tuning screw type device.

Never saw that before. Would want to know how that works.
Is that also a fine tuner on the 2nd chikari string? I think I saw these small fine tune balls on RS en Anoushka Shankar's sitar as well.
