Colored (white) strings

Looking for some info and to cut research time down.
Quick background. Around twenty years ago I purchased a schector devil bass. Had some electronic issues coupled with life, I stopped playing. Through a few moves it got majorly neglected. It spent around 5-7 years unprotected in a garage rafter in North Carolina. Fast forward to now I am restoring it no neck damage. It’s going well. That brings me to my question.
I already have 2 basses with rounds on them. I wanna put flats on this. It gave me the idea of white strings on this bass would look sick.
Question: who all are the manufacturers making truly white in color strings?
Are labella copper whites actually white? From what I can find they are not. Any advice would be appreciated.

DR Neon strings come in white:

They are roundwounds though.

LaBella White or Gold White Nylon Tape strings might be closer to what you’re looking for:


Yeah but they are much closer to flats in terms of feel and tone. They are not as crisps as normal rounds.

Are the labella’s actually white. They don’t look very white on YouTube and I can’t find any clear pictures

If the labella’s are not really white. I may just go with the labella’s. I really don’t want the rounds. I have never played flats. And this is my chance to test them out on something with little risk

Gold White Nylon Tapewound

Copper White Nylon Tapewound

So neither a pure white but the gold white is closer to pure white.

This is La Bella tapewound white gold on my P bass.

The left one has optima unique studio gold strings. (Round)

I just realized that @soulman also posted the pictures :joy:

Yours is a better view of them on the bass itself.
