A true diminished 7th is 1 3b 5b 7bb, and you can't get it worth a d--n on an equal temperament scale (it appears that the equal temperament approximation is worse here than in any other place)

The frequency ratios of the notes are 1:(6/5):(6/5)^2:(6/5)^3.

See program SCALE35C.TRU on my website to get the true diminished 7th note frequencies for any choice of base note.
