Default Lead on Regal Tip Brushes?

I just got them and I was sweeping with them, and after 1 hour of it, there was a lot of black stuff on my head. I tried erasing it with an eraser, and it worked. I think it is lead. Is it normal?

Dont worry it's absolutely normal that your coated heads has that black whipping mark from the brushes and there's nothing you can do about it. Dont lose your time trying to erase the marks, they'll be back the next time you use your brushes.

Look at the heads of the greats in jazz drumming and you'll see that black spot on their heads as well. It's normal, it happens, nothing to worry about. I doubt it's lead it's probably a coating to keep them from rusting. If it is lead don't lick them and you won't get lead poisoning :p

It's not lead, it's grease. You can remove it from the brushes with some solvent liquid.

Man I love the Regal Tip 9A's. They are good for everything and very comfortable for me. My only problem is that although they get tacky when my hands warm up, when my hands start to sweat they slip like crazy. I'm assuming its the finish on them that doesn't allow the stick to absorb any moisture like regular sticks... But yea, I have vic firth brushes and i get the same black stuff so don't sweat it.
