A double sharp
The musical note "A" preceded a double sharp () symbol. The effect of the double sharp symbol raises the pitch of the indicated note by two semitones (two half steps). The resultant pitch would sound the same as the pitch "B".
[Eng.] A double sharp;
[Fr.] La double dièse (m);
[Ger.] Aisis (n);
[It.] La doppio diesis (m);
[Sp.] La doble sostenido.
