Black Powder Coming Out When I Played

I just got my Instrument 1 and I wondered if I am the only one having this problem. After playing with it for a while, I noticed that there are black powder coming out from the bridge.

You can see in the attached images that even my finger got darken after playing it.

Is it typical for a new Instrument 1? Would it go away?

I observe the same problem after just 3 days, however not as bad as on your pictures. It's because the rubber nobs of the bridge wear off. I wonder how long those will last and if they can be replaced?!

Hi there. On some occasions, we've seen that the rubber can dry out and get flakey. In this case, we recommend using mineral oil from a lint-free cloth to help keep it from drying out.
