Ok, here's my spill.
fast valves, but not always accurate
if you find the right one, great sound and projection
nice low range and great upper range
intonation can be weird in middle register
Great feel also
great valves once broken in
nice in all registers
great valves (best of the 3)
smaller bell (or so it seems)
great upper register, fairly stuffy lower register
Of the 3, I would honestly go with the 642 UNLESS you could find a great Prestige (which is hard to do). I personally play on a Willson 2900, and really like it. Horns are something you need to play on YOURSELF and decide. I can tell you all I know about them, but it doesn't affect the way YOU will use and play it. Hope I can help.
