Plugging into a home stereo or boom box If you plug your electric guitar into the auxiliary input of your home stereo, you can get away with not buying an amp at all. Before you go plugging anything in to a stereo or boom box, make sure that the volume control on the receiver is all the way down.
Is it bad to play an electric guitar without an amp?
Yes, electric guitars can be played without an amp. They will not, however, project as much sound if they’re not plugged in. It can help to amplify the sound and add an extra ‘oomph’ to it.
