I think you're right. I spotted this while watching the video again. Notice inside the drum, you'll see what you would normally see inside a timpani, 5 or 6 "arms" that are connected to a pedal in order to change the pitch. You can see them moving up and down as he plays.

I also found on http://www.nodarrode.com/custom.html

"Max Roach asked Nodar to customize his Hollywood timpani floor tom tom with brand new shell"

I never knew that :)
