Default 3 Mic Recording

I was wondering if anyone has tried a 3 mic recording technique using stereo overheads and a separate kick mic (and possibly a fourth to pick up the snare/HH). If so, did you find that you had enough control and did the imaging work out? I've always used the method of 2 overheads w/ low cut filters for the cymbals, a mic (or 2) for snare/HH, one for kick and one for each tom (or one mic per pair if many toms). I'm also wondering if anyone has tried this for live PA.

Thanks
