Bulent Akbay was born in Istanbul and was interested in playing the drums at an early age.  He played throughout school and like other drummers in the area he was always looking for a place to play.  This need led Bulent to form his own drum studio and school, which later included a retail element of the business.  His connections within the percussion world afforded him the chance to meet and get to know the cymbal master Mehmet Tamdeger, who later hired Bulent as a product tester.
