A double flat


The musical note "A" preceded by two flat (♭♭) symbols. The effect of each flat symbol (♭) lowers the pitch of the indicated note a semitone (or half step), so A double flat is the pitch "A" lowered by two semitones (two half steps). The resultant pitch would sound the same as the pitch "G".

See also [Eng.] A double flat; [Fr.] La double bémol (m); [Ger.] Ases (n); [It.] La doppio bemolle (m); [Sp.] La doble bemol.
