Apparently, you don't just glue piezo as you wish - the ceramic should be facing the mesh:

Placing it upside down will add >5ms delay and will remove that crucial first peak that is most likely being analyzed by pulse processor.

now I need to get rid of this mesh hi freq vibration.

So now I need to flip all the sensors and to start analyzing what happens to the signal inside the analogical debris of the drum module.
