I have run my small coil here (3" x 14" secondary, 30" streamers with
12 kV, 60 ma transformer) using an antique AMRAD quenched gap circa
1920. No light or sound from the gap, only from secondary discharge and
much more "pleasant" to behold. Unfortunately the gap breaks down at
only 8000 volts, so can't get full output.
