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