A drum-set is an awfully big commitment - all the pieces, and the noise, and the tripping over the parts.
For a beginner, you may want to start with this super-convenient roll-up drum kit! It's totally portable and includes 9 drum images that make their respective clashes, booms, and hisses when you rap them with the provided drum sticks. The kit includes record and playback functions, multiple instrumental tracks, professional demos, multiple sound styles, audio input and output, AND you can connect your Mp3 player! There are even PEDALS for hi-hat and bass drum sounds, and a set of headphones so Mom won't rock'n'roll that drum set right out of the house. Sure to make any kid a rockstar!

Nine year olds are clever little fellows and have lots of interests. Great presents for 9 year old boys are remote controlled cars or flying objects, science construction kits, anything that shoots, or outdoor gear. Magic is popular and anything involving pranks will appeal to that 9 year old sense of fun. Or get them a great book.
