    OK, being the genius I am, I hooked up a 6 volt EL-wire driver to 12 volts (to see what would happen)
    and it went poof
    and I kinda need it...

    I'm hoping the thing that fried was the transistor, which is marked
    "SSX550
    D 331"
    I can't seem to find replacements

    also, does anyone know any simple EL wire driver circuits, in case it's the IC that's fried and I can't fix it and need to build one?
    (probably the case but the transistor is worth a shot)

    I'm not sure, but it's the only thing I've seen that makes close to sense. I'll replace it with something similar and see, thanks :)
