In fact the drum in classical style is usually played with the ring finger and that's the way I played it. But it seems to me that it doesn't sound the same as the open drum, and I think that playing the one or the other depends on what rhythm and the context we are playing in.

I think they are indeed two very similar instruments! You are correct about the holes, but the main difference - I think - is the sound. Although the kawala and the ney sound almost the same, if you listen closely, the kawala sounds a bit more "heavy" or "soulful", if you know what I mean, as opposed to a ney.

It's a folk instrument and the traditional drums do not have adjustable heads, so maybe there is no correct setting. Possibly traditional players sprinkle some water on the head to bring it where they prefer. I would think a clear resonant bass note would be the place to start, using your fingers to raise the pitch while playing.
