It's possible, but unknown if he actually used it. Supposedly around 1989, he and Dylan Carlson got into this phase of going around thrift shops and buying up old MXR pedals that were no longer made at the time, though he was only known to have used the Phase 100 and Distortion+. I'm sure he had quite a few effects that were never used.

This submission is correct. It just says Cobain said he had one but it's unknown if he actually recorded with it. Did he use it? We don't know, but we do know he had one. I've never heard or seen him use it live either, & his guitar tech's never mentioned it.

If this video doesn't prove it, I don't know what else will... he quite literally NEVER used it, but I guess if he says he has one then he's got it.
