    Quick question. I have an old plasma ball that used to be my sister's
    that I found in a box of stuff. It still works. My question is this:
    If I removed the glass globe, would I be left with a working open air
    tesla coil?

    It is possible, but I am not shure, there is a possibility that it
    will be a flyback converter like T.V. THT

    Those are neat things, you can use them to drive small Tesla Coils.

    Also useful for driving Cockroft-Walton multipliers to generate
    insanely high (megavolts) voltages, charging capacitors, etc.
