I guess he got frustrated with it.  ;)

Here, Paul McCartney shows how they got that drop in the tone of the Mellotron at the beginning of Strawberry Fields...

Just a turn of a knob!  That's a pretty amazing instrument.  Remember that the 1960s Mellotrons were limited to 8 or 9 seconds duration of a note when a key was depressed before the tape loop played out.  What Mike Pinder did when he was with The Moody Blues was phenomenal!
