I think you are referring to the primary coil, and yes they are very
neccessary. If you have read up on the theory and physics behind the tesla
coil, you would see that they work because a magnetic field is created in
the primary coil and when it collapses around the secondary coil, it creates
an electric charge which is significantly higher than the primary coil's
because of the turn ratio . If you only have one coil, then you are missing
the step up transformer affect and don't really have a tesla coil.
