One with a preamp.

Don

I buy whatever is the least expensive. Get em from CB Gitty who advertises on this site.

 

20mm ones work just fine.

I use the 20mm from Gitty, its not always the piezo but the placement that makes them sound better. I have not found the need for a pre-amp yet.
This is what I use ....also its a great place to get the parts you need  I give it an A++++

One of these kits off ebay

The kit includes a rod piezo and volume/tone controls and output jacksocket - no soldering required. (The tone control works well) There are more pictures here http://www.cigarboxnation.com/group/cbgwiringelectronics/forum/topi...
