    You’re right that Rich Matteson played a Yamaha 321. Wow, what an artist he was may he Rest In Peace. The bore of the 321 is .570 vs .590 (or more) on compensators so its tone is different. I’m...

    Well, I confess that I still use one over my mpc connection to its receiver. The effects are subtle... like the 'b' in subtle I guess. I didn't hear a big difference myself but my wife said she...

    Welcome to the forum Pete. I'm sure your lip and fingering coordination will come back. Maybe not like 'riding a bike', but it will come back. I didn't play for 33 years so it took me awhile.

    Pretty sure he went into the ministry. I think that's great, but I agree, I too hope he's still playing. He was an excellent musician.
