    Just curious if these are the slightly translucent color (ala nylon guitar strings)? I'm purchising some next week and I'm curious. Does anyone have a picture of a bass with Labella strings? Muchos Gracias! :)

    You're talking about the Supernyls?
    They're thick as gut strings.
    The G and D are whitish, wound with round nylon.
    The E and A are wound with round (metal) wire, like standard gut strings.

    LaBella also makes the 7710 set, black-nylon wound (tape flatwound).
    They also make the 7720, 610 and RC610 sets, which are full steel. (7710 and RC610 use a rope-core steel core while the 610 use a solid steel core)
    They have the usual grey colour of steel strings.
