Considered one of the finest patterned Odontiodas ever created, by David Stead at Mansell & Hatcher, Oda. Joe's Drum was first brought to the US by Tim Brydon. Tim, a foundation officer of the IOA, has maintained a superb collection of Odonts for many years. He has taken Oda. Joe's Drum (Oda. Joe Marshall × Oda. Drumory) forward to F2 and F3 editions and one must honestly say, improving on the fine original with each step. The highest award to the grex was given to Tim's plant of Oda. Joe's Drum 'Tim Brydon' AM/AOS. It is sad to note that with almost 50 F1 hybrids registered from Oda. Joe's Drum and nearly 200 descendants in total, only 8 have been registered since 2000 with the last registration in 2015. Chase and his cronies at Kew have persisted in trying to destroy the Odontoglossum Alliance's structure but as our group knows, help is on the way to put these upstarts in their place!
