Richard Temple Savage - between in the middle of the 1920's and in the beginning of the 1930's

from A voice from the Pit: Reminiscences of an Orchestral Musician, page 18:

It was not a bad instrument but simple system and lacking the bottom semi-tone which I would need for my first public performance on the instrument - the Prelude and "Liebestod" from "Tristan" with the Stock Exchange Orchestra, I evolved a simple method of obtaining this vital note by inserting the cardboard centre of a toilet roll into the bell when required: it worked very well.
