E double flat


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

See also [Eng.] E double flat; [Fr.] Mi double bémol (m); [Ger.] Eses (n); [It.] Mi doppio bemolle (m); [Sp.] Mi doble bemol.
