    Are you talking about the "Bass Roll-Off Switch"?

    I think the bass roll-off is mostly used to combat the poximity
    effect of close micing vocals.

    When I've recorded guitars with it - I didn't roll any off.

    Ditto! No bass roll off!
    Roll is more for up close speech application.
