using y cable with two mics question

I know this is a brendon o brian tricks for miking toms. anyone tried this?

I have a pre where I can choos the input impedance. I guess using two mics is the same as the impedance of both mics summed right?
I guess if measuring the exact distanse for both mics and flip one of the sides on the Y cable is the trick, or move the bottom mic for more or less bottom end.

any experiences?

Works great. Make a Y cable with one side wired out of polarity. And make sure you label the sides accordingly. Done.

What's the point of reversing polarity on one of the leads?
Is it meant for micing the top & bottom of the same tom, or for micing two toms through one preamp ('I've seen this done live, to save channels)?
If it's the latter, think of the effect on the tom sound when combined with the overhead(s).
