Push your toms together, flatten out the angle of the crash a little so you can get a better crash out of it and have fun, thats a great set.

I can offer some tips for tuning. First of all, this site is very in-depth on tuning method. If are you going to tune, replace the factory drumheads with brand new ones, this will improve the sound significantly.

That is a really nice first kit, for sure. Even for black, the finish looks great. Congratulations.

The "metal beads" are referred to as snare wires, for proper terminology :) The buzzing that you get from the snare when you strike the other drums is normal. It is caused by sympathetic vibration. The frequency of another drum vibrating causes your bottom snare head to vibrate, and thus the snare wires rattle.

Most drummers just live with it and try and tune it out the best they can. Some drummers, like Billy Ward, actually work it into their overall drum sound. Playing with the tuning of the bottom snare head can help, also changing the tuning of the toms so they aren't so close in resonant frequency to the snare drum. I usually find that a higher pitched snare (with a higher top head as well) has left vibration.

Do NOT use tape. You'll only choke the drum and lose sensitivity. The wires and bottom head need to be able to vibrate freely. Also don't tighten the snare wires too much, you'll choke the drum that way as well.
