by CCC you mean the C 5 ledger lines below bass clef, or the one an octave lower?

You can hear the overtones of the "double pedal C" (I don't think we call it that over here - possibly C0?)

Wikipedia says: "The lowest note in the widely known repertoire is a 16 Hz double-pedal C in the William Kraft piece Encounters II, which is often played using a timed flutter tongue rather than by buzzing the lips. The fundamental overtone of this pitch is subsonic, and its overtones define the pitch in the listener's ear."
