C double flat
The musical note "C" preceded by two flat (♭♭) symbols. The effect of each flat symbol (♭) lowers the pitch of the indicated note a semitone (or half step), so C double flat is the pitch "C" lowered by two semitones (two half steps). The resultant pitch would sound the same as the pitch "B flat".
[Eng.] C double flat;
[Fr.] Do double bémol (m);
[Ger.] Ceses (n);
[It.] Do doppio bemolle (m);
[Sp.] Do doble bemol.
