I'll recommend foma papers, they make my favorite papers by far.
My two standard papers are:
Fomatone mg: a fantastic warm tone paper, but since you're not interested in warm tone papers, oh well, by the way it tones redish in selenium , which you may or may not like. This paper has a cream base, and is quite slow.
Fomabrom 111: It is a graded paper but absolutely superb, and cheap too. It is neutral to slightly warm colored but on a white base. This paper is quite fast.
I normally soup these in either lpd developer at 1+4 dilution, or these days ilford warmtone developer. But then I prefer a warmer look. For a more neutral look any dektol variation will do.
For more neutral to colder tones, there is also fomabrom variant III (this is a multigrade paper). This is slower than fomabrom 111 but much faster than Fomatone mg.
I'd just like to add that I have no connection with foma, I'm just a big fan of their papers.
By the way if you want RC paper, Ilford muligrade RC IV deluxe is absolutely splendid.
Hope I've been to some kind of help
