My stepfather has a very deep, but gentle voice. However, if he gets angry, he can add a boom that is incredible. You can literally hear the mugs shifting in the cupboard when he gets loud. (He also stands tall at 6'5" and is very muscular for a 60-year-old).

He did that in a furniture store once. He had bought a table for a lot of money and wanted to get 3 (!) missing screws. They told him that "this isn't our problem, is it?". All he had to say in his booming voice was "do you want me to make it your problem?". He came home with a new table (they were unable to provide the screws separately).

Cheers,
Sebastian
