As the prices suggest, those are all going to be of comparable quality.  The main difference between them is the tone.

I like the warmer, darker part of the tone spectrum, and my personal ranking for those 4 would be (from best-liked to least-liked)

Trad Cannone


Trad Lord Wilton

Trad Pannette


Caveat:  When I was evaluating them, there was no "trad Cannone", there was just the Cannone. They were also all made by GCV.  


My advice would be to listen to each instrument on Youtube (search for "fiddlershop <name of instrument>" ) and decide which one you like better. Concentrate on the videos posted in the last year and a half. Those will reflect the current instruments.

That will be the "best" for you. (It might not be for someone else, but their tastes are irrelevant to yours.)
