wich will give me a punchier, bright and growlier tone?
i havent tried none because where i live none store leaves you try anything unless you go with the money to buy it
only one store leaves you try things just for fun but they only have GK and the only one they (most of the time leave you try is the 300 watts GK
so before going to buy i need your opinions

Out of your list, Laney wins hands down.

None of those amps your listed, or any in your price range for that matter, would be adequate for gigging at all.

Opinions vary, but I personally would say anything between 150 and 200 watts would be the absolute minimum to gig with a decent speaker setup as well. You can just about get away with 100 watt, but no-ones gonna really hear you unless everyone else stops playing.

You might try looking used, you should be able to score a good deal that way.

but i dont need giging
and for some reason for every gig in my city the 2 big music stores use the gigs as sponsorship so they give us the amps we need(usally laney and marshall)
BTW here you dont organise your gigs beacause nobody(musician) is going to spend more than 700$ in full rig
there is people that spends a lot but they are rich or have other work for like 10 years
here you cant live from music so no musician(withouth other work) owns big amp or a gibson guitar or even a fender
BTW i live in latinoamerica and things(music related) are expensive
and we dont have as much money as you(USA, UK an other europeans contrys) for doing the same
for example in the USA i payed 30$ for a taxi and i was like "wtf" because here a the same distance would be like 7 Soles(like 3$) and so on with any other job
sorry for my english

Ah, well if you don't need gig capability then the Laney out of those choices is probably the best. Also have a look at ashdown amps.

Well, for what you asked for, the Hartke will give you that. Bright because of the aluminum cone and punchy if you EQ right. The Laney is the best amp out of the three, but the Hartke is basically what you asked for.
