    I have a Fishman BP 100 that I mix with a mic in the two channel K&K pre. I'm tired of the clips on the Fishman blah blah blah. I read that I can glue the piezos down ... with what ? Elmer's? superglue? epoxy?
    I don't know anything about glue acoustics :)
    I assume a small drop will do it.

    What's worked for you ?

    Fishman themselves recommend hot melt glue, which is what I used. Let your hot glue warm up and clean the pickup and the bridge. YOu can abrade the bridge surface lightly with some very fine sandpaper (like 400 grit) to clean the surface, if you like. Put a drop of glue where you want the pickup element, push it down firmly with your thumb and hold it for a few seconds. It'll stay firmly, and yet peel off cleanly when you want to remove it.
