The drum is 29 to 33.3 centimeters tall, 16.7 to 37 centimeters in diameter on the upper mouth, and 11.7 to 37 centimeters in diameter on the lower mouth. The outer diameter of the drum frame on both sides of each drum is the same but the inner diameter is different, which can produce two tones with different pitches, so there are ten tones in five drums. The sound of the row drums is fierce and swaying, the treble is firm and powerful, and the middle and bass are generous and bright, especially good at expressing warm and jubilant emotions.

The drumming essentials and actions of the row drum are the same as those of the bass drum. Both sides of the row drum can be tuned. This is because each row drum has a large drum on one side and a small drum on the other side, and its sound range is also different. The reason is that the drum head on the other side is not static and resonance occurs although only one side is struck when playing.
