You're correct, when participating in the Scottish Rite or official AASR functions. At his blue lodge, he is bareheaded unless he's the WM.

About 1% of the Scottish Rite receives the 33rd degree. In terms of Freemasonry at large, it's a little smaller than that, given that most Masons don't join the Scottish Rite.

There's a mathematical formula used to determine how many people each state can elect to receive the 33rd degree every two years, and is a bit complicated, based on Scottish Rite membership statistics. But on average, each state is usually allowed to elect one member to receive the 33° for every 100 Scottish Rite members. There are always 2 KCCH elections (red hat) for every one 33rd.

So, for example, if Virginia was given twenty new 33° slots this year, there would also be 40 new KCCH's.
