your bass spurs are backwards... you should switch them.

kit looks good, not a bad 'starter kit' at all, your on the right track upgrading heads first then cymbals - good heads and tuning are half the battle!
one thing i would say is set up your rack toms a little 'flatter' - a sharp angle like that will increase damage from your sticks making an agressive stroke against the heads, myself i'm a heavy hitter and i find i can actually lay into the toms harder when their near flat :-)
and no, don't leave it - the bass drum spurs angle forward - towards the reso head.
good drumming!

Pinstripes will be a lot more durable and last a hell of a lot longer than the Ambassadors. Put the black Ambassadors on the bottoms. It's a good combo.
