I've been using 3m silicone exclusively on mine, it seems to work very well; not only secures the piezo but eliminates the "microphonic" tendencies to a large exent. ( The tendency to pick up every little contact noise with the body of the guitar)
The first couple I sort of "buried" in silicone, but now I just put a heavy layer on the back of the piezo and press in place.
I have used this method on both of my resonators, gluing the thing directly to the underside of the resonator under the bridge.
Agreed. But on the hot glue angle, a number of people at the forum swear by a thin layer of glue on the face of the piezo disc to cut down on feedback and squawk noises.
(Hey Matt, "squawk noises" -- another highly technical term!)
